WELCOME TO MY STORE CAROLINE JULIEN DESIGNS AND GEMS! SPECIALIZING IN RARE, HIGH GRADE AND EXOTIC GEMSTONES. INTRODUCING MY NEW 2020 SPRING COLLECTION!

UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS STUNNING GENUINE NATURAL HIGH GRADE LARGE ETHIOPIAN WELO OPAL, SMOOTH BRIOLETTE DROP PENDANT; YELLOW GOLD FILLED NECKLACE! THIS GORGEOUS TEARDROP SHAPED WELO OPAL MEASURES 18X9X6MM AND WEIGHS 3.85 CARATS. ON TOP OF THE OPAL I'VE WIRE WRAPPED 28 GAUGE YELLOW GOLD FILLED WIRE IN A TWISTED DESIGN, TO CREATE A WIRE WRAPPED BAIL. THE NECKLACE MEASURES 16.25 INCHES LONG WITH AN EXTENDER CHAIN OF 1.5 INCHES, SO IT IS ADJUSTABLE BETWEEN 16.25 INCHES UP TO 17.75 INCHES. I CAN LENGTHEN THIS NECKLACE BY ADDING A LONGER EXTENDER CHAIN. THE GOLD FILLED LOBSTER CLAW CLASP MEASURES 7X5MM AND IS STAMPED'GF'. THE GOLD FILLED CHAIN IS A FINE BUT STURDY CABLE LINK THAT MEASURES 0.5MM. HALF WAY UP THE CHAIN, ON EACH SIDE; I'VE ADDED 2 WELO OPAL ROUND BEADS WHICH MEASURE 3X3X2MM. THE EXTENDER END OF THE CHAIN HAS A WELO OPAL ACCENT BEAD WHICH MEASURES 11X5X2MM AND WEIGHS 0.59 CARATS. THIS'TAIL' LOOKS BEAUTIFUL HANGING DOWN ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK. THE PENDANT CAN MOVE FREELY ALONG THE CHAIN BUT WILL NOT COME OFF THE END. THIS OPAL HAS A SMALL SURFACE IMPERFECTION ON THE FRONT TOP, RIGHT NEXT TO THE WIRE; WHICH IS ONLY NOTICEABLE UPON VERY CLOSE EXAMINATION. THERE ARE ALSO A FEW LIGHT SCUFFS NEXT TO THE WIRE WRAPPED PORTION THAT I ONLY NOTICED AFTER VIEWING THE CLOSEUPS. THE WIRE WRAPPED BAIL ON THIS PENDANT HAS AN OPENING OF 2X2MM IF YOU HAVE A FINE GOLD CHAIN WITH AN END THAT IS SMALL ENOUGH TO GET THROUGH, YOU CAN USE YOUR OWN GOLD CHAIN. THIS ETHIOPIAN WELO OPAL IS 100% NATURAL AND UNTREATED. IT IS A POLISHED DOME OVER THE FRONT AND FLAT ON THE BACK. THE BODY COLOR IS ORANGE TO LIGHT BROWN AND DISPLAYS VERY BRIGHT OPALESCENT FLASH WHEN VIEWED FROM ALL DIRECTIONS. THIS OPAL FLASHES VERY BRIGHTLY IN SUNLIGHT, AND ALSO IN FLUORESCANT OR LOW LIGHT. IT HAS A BEAUTIFUL HONECOMB MATRIX PATTERN ON ONE SIDE AS WELL.

I HAD A DIFFICULT TIME PHOTOGRAPHING THIS OPAL, BUT I PROMISE YOU; THIS OPAL HAS EXCELLENT FIRE. THE OPALESCANT FIRE INCLUDES RED, PEACH, YELLOW, GREEN AND BLUE FIRE. THIS OPAL IS A SOLID OPAL, NOT A DOUBLET OR TRIPLET LIKE MOST AUSTRALIAN OPALS. A SOLID OPAL OF THIS SIZE AND GRADE IS EXCEPTIONALLY RARE AND VALUABLE.

ETHIOPIAN WELO OPALS ARE MINED IN THE WOLLO PROVENCE NEAR THE TOWN OF WEGAL TENA IN ETHIOPIA, AFRICA. SINCE 2008, THIS FINE GRADE OPAL HAS BEEN MINED BY HAND BY LOCALS AND FINE SPECIMENS HAVE COME TO RIVAL AUSTRALIAN OPALS. FINE WELO OPAL SPECIMENS CAN DISPLAY BRIGHT ALL SPECTRAL FIRE AND CAN BE SET AS A SOLID OPAL AS OPPOSED TO DOUBLETS OR TRIPLETS; WHICH IS COMMON FOR AUSTRALIAN OPALS.

OPAL IS A HYDRATED AMPHOROUS FORM OF SILICA WHICH IS CLASSIFIED AS A MINERALOID. THE INTERNAL STRUCTURE OF OPAL CONTAINS MICROSCOPIC SPHERES OF SILICON DIOXIDE MOLECULES ARRANGED IN REGULAR CLOSELY PACKED PLANES. ALL SPECTRAL OPALESCENCE IS OBSERVED FROM THE DIFFRACTION OF LIGHT PASSING THROUGH THE OPAL STRUCTURE.

OTHER TYPES OF OPAL ON THE MARKET INCLUDE AUSTRALIAN OPALS: WHITE OPAL, BLACK OPAL, CRYSTAL OPAL, AND BOULDER OPALS. OTHER FORMS OF OPAL INCLUDE MEXICAN FIRE OPAL, PERUVIAN OPAL, NEVADA OPAL, OWYHEE OPAL FROM OREGON AND COMMON OPAL WHICH IS FOUND IN MANY PLACES AROUND THE WORLD.

THIS PENDANT IS VERY EYE CATCHING AND FLASHES ELECTRIC FIRE LIKE CRAZY. THIS NECKLACE IS STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS, EXQUISITELY DESIGNED AND IS FOR HIGH FASHION WEAR.

THIS PIECE IS FIT FOR A QUEEN OR PRINCESS! THIS ONE OF A KIND NECKLACE WAS CREATED AND HAND MADE BY ME WITH LOVE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO STOP BY AND VISIT MY STORE!
