  • Opal Apatite Necklace, Fanta Orange Ethiopian Opal, Cubic Zirconia, Semi Precious Gemstones, Handmade Sterling Silver Jewellery

     
    Gorgeous 8mm x 6mm oval-shaped fanta orange Ethiopian Opal semi-precious gemstone, complemented by incredible 5mm x 4mm ova-shaped neon blue Apatite & several 1mm x 1mm round-shaped Cubic Zirconias. These gemstones are handset in a sterling silver prong setting & cluster setting respectively!
     
    This handmade jewellery is inspired by my photograph of some of the USA’s jaw-dropping arches, a common sight in the western state of Utah. These otherworldly rock formations, products of the natural forces of water and gravity, lend this sunburnt orange landscape an astonishingly unique appeal.
     
    A birthstone for the month of April first developed in the USSR in the 1970s, cubic zirconia is created from base substances found in extraterrestrial rock from both asteroids and the moon.
     
    As with other opals, Ethiopian opal is a birthstone for October, said to brim with joyously positive emotion whilst also invoking the calmness and restraint required to balance such ardour.
     
    Apatite, an arresting gemstone which naturally occurs in a broad array of hues, is named after the Greek apate (‘deceit’) as its varied colours have fooled many into mistaking it for other minerals.
     
    Attached to an 18-inch chain, this dazzling gemstone pendant will arrive packaged in a small gift box featuring the image of its inspiration on the inside of the lid. Combined with an organza bag, this results in a gorgeously-presented piece which makes the perfect gift.
