We are very proud to offer a double strand (22 & 23 inch) beautiful exciting necklace with two Australian "Fairy" boulder opal focal beads. Fairy opals give a lively color show of iridescent colors : red, orange, green, blue when in a strong light. There are also 11 mm brown boulder opals & lots of gold vermeil findings. I just love boulder opals! But they have gotten outrageous in price in last couple of years, with strands costing over $3,000.xx. This fabulous necklace is accented with faceted green amethyst, green peridot, & citrine. There are also brown (cultured) petal pearls. The Australian boulder opals are from an area called Winton in Queensland Australia. It is a very hard job to find these opals, & it is why they are so expensive. People live & mine in very hot, primitive conditions with practically no rain fall. But these opals are a hard habit to break. This necklace turned out so wonderfully. I love it. So will you!
