Peruvian Opal Flower Earrings
These colorful earrings display gorgeous, Peruvian opal, faceted stones. The opal is wrapped in sterling silver with a flower detail at the top of the earring. The dimensions of the stones are 15mm x 20mm and the length of the full earring is 43mm.
Peruvian opals require extra care, as most opals do. Because of their high water content, I find that these can sweat on a humid day. This means they can dry out easily as well. You don't want these to dry out too much, otherwise they can crack. I find storing them in a dark, cool place when they are not being worn is best and it doesn't hurt to get them wet occasionally to maintain their moisture. This is contrary to Welo, Ethiopian opal, which you don't want to get wet.
Metaphysically, it takes the tension out of communication and helps ideas flow freely. It softens the impact of stress from the outside world and can help one to release the trauma of old wounds. It facilitates facing the future with a tranquil healing nature, helps quiet the mind and can aid sleep. Sleeping with a Peruvian opal is believed to cure subconscious pain from your past.
