This is an absolutely gorgeous pendant!!
A fossilised and opalised seashell - transformed over a few hundred million years into this magnificent Gem Crystal Opal.
I felt very fortunate indeed when this beautiful solid gem crystal rough opal came my way.... it was a delight to create with!
This piece has lovely clarity and as the video shows, a wonderful play of color.
And speaking of color, every color of the rainbow can be found here in sparkling and flashing abundance !
To create this stunning pendant, I have moulded and bonded this lovely piece of Australian gem opal to a lovely solid piece of Koroit Boulder Opal, and then cut and polished it to a mirror finish.
To compliment the finished article, I have fitted a lovely solid 9ct yellow gold bail with a chenier collar, constructed also of solid 9ct.yellow gold.
At the level where the opal meets the boulder, on the side and bottom of the pendant there is a little sand inclusion (small "whitish" area) - which is sometimes normal for a "shell" crystal opal originally from the ocean depths - but this in no way detracts from the beauty of this Australian opal gemstone.
