Double Opal and Emerald Pendant set in Sterling Silver.
Opal was formed many millions of years ago, when a combination of silica and water flowed into cracks and spaces in the ground. This then gradually hardened and solidified to become opal.

Opals color range and related names are varied. The previous mystery of the cause of color of opal has been reveled via the electron microscope. When precious opal is viewed through this microscope, it is seen as a uniform stacking and sizing of a great number of tiny spheres. These three dimensional stacked spheres and the cavities between them, together, act as a diffraction grating which can divide light into the spectral colors, the diameter of the spheres within any grouping determining the resultant coloring.
The intrinsic properties of the numerous forms of Opal include the amplification of one’s traits and characteristics, therefore, providing impetus to overcome the lesser attributes. It helps one to recognize and to feel the creativity which is within the self, providing inspiration and imagination to all situations.
It is known as a “stone of happy dreams and changes”; the happy dreams arising from the understanding of personal higher potentials coupled with the glad acceptance of one’s inherent perfection. The happy changes emanate from those events and situations which allow ones aspirations to surface.
This mineral has been used to awaken both the psychic and the mystical qualities. It helps one to understand the higher powers of intuition and mysticism and to utilize these powers to enhance personal understanding and personal experiences in the realms of the sacred and avant-garde aspects of being.
