African Green Opal 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 heart shape, perfect for that romantic Valentine gift for you or someone special. Most of the stone is a translucent pale green with splashes of reddish brown on the lower right quadrant. Because this stone was a bead and has a hole drilled front to back, I've camouflaged it with wire curls over the top, then border wrapped it in 21 gauge sterling silver wire and added my signature swirls and curl topper. 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 1/4" from bottom of stone to top of bail and is 1 1/2" 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.
