This pendant is available for immediate shipment. It comes gift ready in a nice leatherette gift box with a solid sterling silver 16 inch long by 1 milimeter thick rope chain.
Opal Notes: Beautiful HIGH dome honeycomb opal!! The opal is 7.55mm thick so it makes a very flashy pendant. This honeycomb opal has the less common and highly desireable organic free shape honeycomb matrix. As you look at the honeycomb matrix you will see many different and amazing shapes. On the front and back I see shapes that remind me of leaves. Beautiful pearlescent base color provides the perfect backdrop to the brilliant colors that flash and roll within this opal.
BRAND NEW hand crafted pendant with a beautiful opal from the Welo Province of Ethiopia, Africa. The pendant is very beautiful, it shows great color in all lighting conditions. It sparkles and glistens with nothing but candlelight. Handcrafted in the USA.
The pendant has a solid opal - not synthetic, not a doublet or a triplet. It was mined from the earth, skillfully cut from the rough into its current finished form, and then masterfully set into the setting you see.
In our jewelry, no synthetic gemstones of any kind are ever used and only solid precious metals are used - never plated. Accent stones while natural are likely heated which is customary.

About My Pictures and Videos
When you hold an opal in your hand, it should look better in your hand than the images used to show it - not the other way around. It is never my intention to portray an opal better in my images than it appears in real life. The images you see are accurate to the best of my ability. Generally, with the opal in hand you will see higher lustre; and greater depth and liveliness than I capture in my images.
If you are new to opals then you should know that it is impossible to capture the exact nature of an opal in images. Many opals look different under different lighting conditions. Make sure to look at your opal with the sun at your back and coming over your shoulder. Not all opals look best in full sunlight. Some opals look better with less light and some opals look drastically different on cloudy days or in the morning light . I hope you have fun exploring the wonderful world of opal.
How to choose opals
If you happen to be new to the world of opals then please know this: only about 10% of all mined opal is gem grade opal with the rest being colorless potch. If you have ever seen an opal that looked dull with almost no color inside of it then you saw a very low quality opal. I am offering much higher quality opals. When you acquire an opal from me you are getting an opal that has been hand-selected for its unique characteristics by an opal expert who spends nearly all of his time working with opals.
How do I know which opal to buy: One question people often ask is, “how do I know which opal to buy?” Opals are exceptionally rare and beautiful gemstones. They have fire inside of them that flashes and rolls as you move them around. To me, it seems that each opal has energy trapped inside of it; almost like an eternal sunset. As the colors flash and roll, it’s almost as if the opal is telling a story. So, as you look at the opal, listen to it. You should buy the opal “that speaks to you.”
