African Green Opal Freeform Pendant


African green opal comes in a rich mix of forest green and rust brown. It can be dressed up or down and works for all seasons. This particular stone is a lovely curved teardrop shape with the splashes of brown over a stunning semi-translucent green background (much prettier than the photo!) I've border wrapped it in 21 gauge sterling silver wire and added a double swirl and tiny claws. A hidden bail is large enough for most chains. Enjoy this most unusual stone!

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

The pendant is 2 3/4" from bottom of stone to top of bail and is 7/8" 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.
