This gorgeous, energetically powerful Fairy Spirit Natural Australian Opal Teardrop Quartz Amphora Pendant has a hole drilled through the water-clear natural Brazilian quartz teardrop so that it can be worn as a pendant and even used for dowsing like a pendulum when hung from a cord or chain. Use it with either gold or silver or even leather to wear around your neck.
This gorgeous Opal Gemstone Pendant is a creation of our friend, AGTA Fashion Forward award winning gemologist and jewelry designer Brian Cook. This lovingly hand-crafted gemstone pendant was formed from a water-clear Brazilian quartz crystal which was drilled and filled with Australian opal gemstone chips suspended in jojoba oil, then capped with natural quartz. Depending on how you view the stone, the chips can appear magnified as you can see in the photos on this page.
Some of our products are combinations of various crystals, gems, metals and other substances. None of these combination products has been under compression at any stage in its creation [but they are fitted together naturally].
Metaphysical and Mineralogical Properties of Opals
This gorgeous Fairy Spirit Natural Australian Opal Teardrop Quartz Amphora Pendant exhibits an inner iridescence that creates gorgeous sparking throughout the pendant.
The rough, uncut, untreated, all natural Opal gemstone chips exhibit varying shades of colors of the dawn: Caribbean blue, turquoise, cerulean, green, salmon pink & sparks of blue and golden fire.
The word opal comes from the Sanskrit word "upala", meaning "precious stone," and the later Greek word "opallios", meaning "to see a change of color."
Opals are hard, very light and somewhat fragile gemstones composed of micro-spheroids of hydrous silica, and is never found in crystalline form, but rather in small veins, globules or crusts in rock formations. When these tiny microscopic spheres stack in an orderly fashion, forming a complex latticework structure, the play of light refracted through the latticework creates the various beautiful colors we associate with the opal. The size of the spheres and the cavities within the latticework determines the color spectrum that the opal exhibits to the naked eye.
Opal is a stone of visions, a stone to promote lucid dreaming, and a stone prized by artists and creative people to stimulate the imagination and trigger inspiration. Native American shamans and Australian aboriginal medicine men use opals to stimulate clairvoyant visions, to obtain meaningful dreams foretelling future events, and to connect with the "dreamtime", the state of Unity consciousness that transcends the space-time continuum as we know it.
Opal is known as a stone of successful relationships, and has been used traditionally as an expression of unconditional love, as the love of a mother for her daughter, and also to promote steadfast fidelity in love relationships between the sexes.
The fire within the opal is said to stimulate the inner fire of the bearer, helping to activate the kundalini energy which is said to reside in the root chakra, and which, when activated, rises to the crown of the head, triggering a variety of mystical experiences.
This crystal has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation.
