African Green Opal Teardrop Pendant


African green opal comes in a rich mix of greens and browns. This particular rounded teardrop shows wide bands of chestnut on a willow mixed with white background. There is a healed fracture that runs diagonally across the stone but in no way detracts from its strength or beauty. I've border wrapped this lush gemstone in 22 gauge sterling silver wire and added my signature curls and swirls topper. Enjoy this unusual stone!

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The pendant is 1 7/8" from bottom of stone to top of bail and is 1 1/8" wide.

Note: This stone is known to the industry as African opal, but no one can really say exactly what makes it up. We know that African opal is a natural stone and, more importantly, it is a well-loved semi-precious gem! Opal Stone is unique in that it has few color variations. It has a Mohs hardness of 4. Southern African Opal is famous for its milky light colored greens and smooth texture.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
