Banded Opal Pendant Wire Wrapped in .925 Sterling Silver Round Wire

This interesting stone provides diagonal banding of white opal and translucent clear chalcedony. If worn for white color only, a nice choice for white, and light colored clothing; better with bright and dark colors for contrast and enhancement of the banding pattern; best with similarly striped or band patterned clothing; not particularly well suited with earth tones.

Description: Diagonal, nearly vertical, banded clear and white; dome bottom rhombohedral shaped, translucent and opaque stone wrapped in 22 gauge sterling silver wire.

Stone Size: Medium (1-3/8” x 5/8” x 3/8”).

Pattern: Straight line diagonal banding.

Contour: Smooth slanted, flat face.

Unique Features: Banding, and some natural pitting on back of stone.

Polish: High gloss, brilliant.

Edges: Smooth, a few small brown pitted areas from remaining host rock.

Treatment: None; natural stone, smoothed and polished only.

Comment: Haven’t seen this stone before? Some specific types of opal aren’t abundant enough to be produced commercially. They may only be found as one or a few in random places; at very small, unique sources; or under conditions where excessive sorting through a large amount of unattractive material becomes too labor intensive to be worth any commercial endeavor. This is one of those. We get this stone from its source. A unique, handmade, genuine semi-precious stone pendant, this piece is posted individually, not merely a representative item - what you see is what you get
