Banded Opal Pendant Wire Wrapped .925 Sterling Silver
Banded Opal Pendant Wire Wrapped in .925 Sterling Silver Round Wire
This interesting stone provides vertical banding of white opal and translucent clear chalcedony. 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 tone colors. The near rectangle shape and precise vertical banding may make this stone attractive to the purist, but some remnant host rock and pitting on the top and back adds some artistic flavor to this stone.

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
