Ethiopian Opal Pendant
This Ethiopian Opal pendant is all about fire and flash. It's set in 925 sterling silver.
White opal, a hydrated silica material with a hardness of 5.5 to 6.5, is the best-known Opal and the most widely used in jewelry. Its milky background color sets off the multicolored fire in a very attractive way. The bulk of White Precious Opals come from Australia.
White precious opal carries a seed of the “holy fire,” the intense spiritual energy that consumes the impure aspects of the self without necessarily “burning” us. The more willing we are to release our attachments to our angers, fears or other negative patterns, the better it can work.
