Opal Stud Earrings-6mm Fire Opals
These fabulous stud earrings feature two American Mined™ Lake County Fire Opals™. The color is a rich honey amber color. This will be a fast favorite for summertime!
They are completely handmade in my studio using all sterling silver. I have hand soldered the bezels to the studs and mounted the stones within them. The posts are sterling silver.
The color of fire opal is due to fine traces of iron oxide. This variety does not usually contain the flashes of light and color typical of other opals; like other opals, however, fire opal is composed of silicon and water. The Aztec culture held that a stone with this fire and beauty had to have originated in the seas of Paradise. Fire opal is the only natural opal that is normally faceted.
The Opal cabochons are 6mm in diameter.
They will arrive carefully packaged in a small kraft gift box.
