This pair of earrings features gorgeous oval-shaped sky-blue opals from Peru. The gems are hung from sterling silver chandelier findings that have a triskelion pattern in them. The total drop from the sterling earwires is 1 3/4 inches. As with all of our earrings, these come in ziplock bags to keep tarnish away and have clear soft rubber earnuts to keep them securely in place.
As a birthstone for Libras, opals are intensely connected with relationships. The polarity sign, Aries, indicates that one IS, and Libra joins with Aries and extends the statement to become we are. We incarnate to learn how to integrate the sign opposite our Sun sign (as well many other reasons, of course), so it is healthy for Libras to read up on how to Be as an individual, as well as about relationships, so as not to fall into co-dependent ones. In the same vein, it is important for Aries to read about and practice cooperation, sharing, and the finesse needed for healthy compromise as well as learning how to balance the needs of one's self in this world of others.
In evolving and trying to learn the lessons of the other sign, one shouldn't go too far and abandon taking care of one's own needs or respecting the concept of Selfhood. As one school of philosophy would assert, self is essential to other, but it is healthy to remember that a partnership is at its strongest when two Whole people come together. Others are mirrors from which we learn about what Self is, but that doesn't mean we should discount our own self-perceptions.
Blue Peruvian (Andean) Opal is mystically known as a stone of courage, creativity, and ingenuity. It is said to improve self-esteem and self-love. It is also said to be an aid to creativity and communication of all types. It is reputed to help one find a confidante as well. Its color links it with the throat chakra, aiding in communication between friends or lovers.
Opal is said to bring inspiration and imagination. Opal augments memory, is a very spiritual stone, and can help bring happy dreams. For those of us who resist change, it can ease the trauma of metamorphosis.
The opal is also linked with invisibility, but we somehow doubt you'll find yourself invisible while wearing these! The opal is also used to bring out your inner beauty, and is a luck-bringing stone.
All of our items are one of a kind, hand-crafted and designed with a true love of the glorious gemstones of Mother Earth. Thank you for looking, and Brightest Blessings!
