Opal Pendant, OOAK Australian Necklace, Boho Jewelry, October Birthstone, Blue Stone and Sterling Silver Pendant
One of a kind Australian opal shield shape set in sterling silver and accented with one 6mm opal and two chrysoprase 4mm cabochons and a twisted wire border. This soft blue opal has flashes of soft green and reminds me of an undersea cloud. The opal measures 14mm from point to middle of arc and 20 mm from side to side. The sterling silver snake chain has a lobster claw clasp for safety. Opals are the birthstone for October and this necklace would make a wonderful gift for an October person. (There is a tiny, natural divot in the face of the main opal which accounts for the price.)
Opals are formed when water runs down through the earth and mixes with silicon dioxide. As the water seeps into cracks and crevices (that are caused by natural faults or decomposing fossils), the water eventually evaporates, leaving the silica. The silica particles catch the light and diffracts it, giving the stones the luminescent quality opals are known for. The process of creating an opal takes millions of years!
