This beautiful Ethiopian Opal Pendant is a feminine oval shape and is set in Sterling Silver. What I love about Ethiopian opal is that you have the misty opalescence and as well this magical stone gifts you with flashes of rainbow colour.
Opal is in harmony with the number 8 and is the Elemental Astrological Signs of Cancer, Libra, Pisces & Scorpio. The cause of precious opal's colour was a mystery until the discovery of the electron microscope. It was then found that opal was composed of a great number of tiny 3 dimensional stacked spheres of silica. The cavities between the spheres can cause light to be divided into the spectral colours. Opal without colour contains spheres which are not of orderly size or stacking. Opal can amplify our traits and characteristics, providing motivation for our positive traits to prevail. It helps us to tap into our creativity and imagination. Opal allows us to be spontaneous and true to our feelings. With Opal we can feel more deeply and release our inhibitions. It can be used to strengthen our memory and to instill faithfulness and loyalty. Opal is known as a "stone of happy dreams and changes". Opal can awaken and help us to understand our psychic and mystical qualities. Opal has been used by the Native American Indian and Australian Aboriginal shamans to invoke visions. Opal which has fire (spectral colour) can be used to encourage flashes of intuition and insight.
This pendant is approx. 1/4" (without the bail)
