    Ooh! Aah! Just love everything here, although I don’t own any of it. Maybe I should fix that!

  2. tomasina
    tomasina says:

    I like the pick fine, but why is it that none of the “African green opal” appears to be green? Or opal, for that matter? Color me confused.

  3. S KatollakaSue
    S KatollakaSue says:

    I understand that the color is due to the presence of copper ore that tends to be greenish. Like weathered copper is that neat gray-green color. Malachite also owes its color to copper compounds, but those give that wonderful bright green. I can’t explain the opal part, but I’ll bet someone else here can.

    And like many stones, color varies with the sample.

    Maggies Mom says:

    Sue, thanks for that information! I just fell in love with all the different pops of green throughout the stones, which were a complete surprise to me. I don’t recall ever seeing this gem previously, and the colors are so surprising and rich.

    This is gorgeous! A favorite for sure! You did a great job highlighting the green in the Opal beads. I have several strands in varying shapes–now I know what to pair them with! :)

    How did I miss these. What a gorgeous group of greens!!! I signed up for some of the green opal when they get more of the 8mm rounds back in stock. I love this pick. Its perfect for spring. I’m also getting some of the green Tibetan rice beads for summer and fall necklaces.
