These earrings are beautiful!! They are a natural stone and not perfectly clear but have inclusions which when the light passes through them make them beautiful and reflective. My personal opinion is the imperfections make them more beautiful and desirable, the stones are about 3/4 inch long without the shepherd hook which adds 3/8 inch.
