Crescent Moon Earrings Taxco Hector Aguilar 940 Fine Silver Amethyst Mexican

Rare vintage screw back earrings by Hector Aguilar. 
They are in the design of Modernist styled Crescent Moon and an orb that serves as a star. The moon is set with hand carved amethyst. The stones have beautiful purple color that is natural.
One stone has a crack, but the cracks does not move. Not sure it if was glued or if the crack does not go all the way through. The other stone has an indention that looks like a chip, but under the 30X loupe the indention has lined tool marks so I am not sure that this is damage, but perhaps done by the lapidary artist. The color of the stones is two toned and beautiful.
They measure 5/8" x 3/4".
Together they weigh 9.2 grams. 
Fully hallmarked on the back.
The 940 fine silver is tarnished. I have not polished them to preserve the original patina.
