Peruvian Opal Thai Silver Flower Necklace
This necklace features a dreamy Peruvian opal in a teardrop cut. Coiled with sterling silver wire with a twisted texture, a Thai silver, flower charm accents the top of the stone. The pendant measures 25mm in width with a length of 40mm, which includes the silver bail. It slides around a sterling silver, foxtail chain with a length is 16" adjustable up to 18". A turquoise bead accents the end of the extension chain.
Peruvian opal is relatively rare and is only found in the Andes mountains near San Patricio, Peru. Its high-water content makes it delicate and sensitive to heat. I find that these stones will sweat with high humidity, which means they can dry out easily in a dry climate. This makes them susceptible to cracking or breaking if they dry out too much. Like most opals, a little extra care is required to maintain their beauty.
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.
