Outstanding Green Opaque Opal Pendant and Necklace (GRN-002)
The natural colorations of this square-cut Green Opaque Opal Pendant and Necklace stones illustrate a wonder of Mother Nature—how stones of the same family always exhibit totally different mosaics. No two natural stones are exactly alike, even when they are of the same cut and have the same or similar colorations. The Pendant is accented by Miriam's Signature Sterling Silver Swirl.
- The square focal stone is 1.5 x 1.5 inches in diameter.
- The full pendant length is 1.5 inches.
- Teardrop green opals compliment the pendant.
- The necklace is 21 inches long and includes both square and oval Green Opals and toasty brown fine glass and sterling silver beading.
Matching Earrings and Bracelet available by special order.
What Are Opaque Opals?
The Greens and Blue-Green colors that splash through these unusual Australian Green Opaque Opals, contrast sharply with the varying shades of brown and terra cotta that form a mosaic throughout each stone. In the sunlight, you can see hints of an almost-iridescent golden brown. But don’t let the “Opal” name of this stone fool you! Green Opaque Opals are called “Common Opals”— they are opaque and rarely translucent like the “Precious Opals” that have fiery play-of-color and rainbow hues. Australian Green Opaque Opals look especially beautiful against the whites, bright greens, yellows and beiges of spring and summer fashions; AND just as lovely with the deep greens, browns and taupes of fall, as well the grays and blacks of winter. Miriam calls Australian Green Opaque Opals “truly a gemstone for all seasons!”
