This cute Blue Opal stone is set in a handmade sterling silver bezel setting with a 16″ stainless steel chain. The pendant is approximately 1″ long. Blue Opal, also known as Andean or Peruvian Opal, is a variety of Common Opal that does not carry that “opal fire”. It is a lovely pale blue to blue-green stone to keep with you as it helps to bring the joy back into your life. A stone of communication and creativity, Blue Opal allows you to speak your mind without fear or recrimination. It can help you believe in your own abilities and attract like-minded people into your life. All items are handmade, with love, in Parker, CO and are from the highest quality materials. Gems, stones and quartz are handpicked to ensure only the best clarifications are used in my jewelry. As with all handmade items, no two are alike and variations in color and shades should be expected. Quartz, gems and stones are known to absorb the cosmic energy from celestial bodies and exert great influence on your body, providing relevant healing properties including but not limited to physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
