WELCOME TO MY STORE CAROLINE JULIEN DESIGNS AND GEMS! INTRODUCING MY NEW 2019 SPRING / SUMMER COLLECTION! SPECIALIZING IN RARE, HIGH GRADE AND EXOTIC GEMSTONES.

UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS STUNNING GENUINE NATURAL HIGH GRADE BLACK ETHIOPIAN WELO OPAL SMOOTH BRIOLETTE DROP PENDANT; ROSE GOLD FILLED NECKLACE! THIS GORGEOUS LARGE BLACK OPAL MEASURES 18X13X8MM AND WEIGHS 8.28 CARATS! ON TOP OF THE OPAL I'VE WIRE WRAPPED A 14K ROSE GOLD FILLED BAIL WHICH MEASURES 6X4X4MM WITH AN OPENING OF 5X3MM. THE NECKLACE MEASURES 18 INCHES LONG WITH AN EXTENDER CHAIN OF 2 INCHES, SO IT IS ADJUSTABLE BETWEEN 18 INCHES UP TO 20 INCHES. I CAN'T SHORTEN THIS CHAIN, BUT I CAN LENGTHEN THIS NECKLACE BY ADDING A LONGER EXTENDER CHAIN.

THE ROSE GOLD FILLED LOBSTER CLAW CLASP MEASURES 9X6MM AND IS STAMPED'GF' AND'925'. THE ROSE GOLD FILLED CHAIN IS A GALAXY STARBURST LINK THAT GLITTERS IN THE LIGHT AND MEASURES 1MM THICK. THE EXTENDER END OF THE CHAIN HAS A SIBERITE TOURMALINE FACETED BRIOLETTE ACCENT BEAD WHICH MEASURES 12.5X7X4MM AND WEIGHS 3.16 CARATS. THIS'TAIL' LOOKS BEAUTIFUL HANGING DOWN ON THE BACK OF YOUR NECK. THE OPAL, TOGETHER WITH THE TOURMALINE; MAKES THIS A PERFECT OCTOBER BIRTHSTONE NECKLACE. THE PENDANT WAS EXPERTLY WIRE WRAPPED ONTO THE BAIL WITH 26 GAUGE ROSE GOLD FILLED HALF HARD WIRE. THE PERSON WHO DRILLED THIS PENDANT, STARTED ON THE LEFT SIDE; EXCEPT HIS FIRST ATTEMPT DID NOT GO THROUGH. SO, HE DRILLED AGAIN IN FRONT OF THE FIRST HOLE. THERE IS A CHIP BESIDE THE HOLE ON THE LEFT SIDE THAT IS ONLY NOTICEABLE UPON CLOSE EXAMINATION.

I'VE USED JEWELER'S GLUE TO SECURE THE WIRE WHICH IS ALSO NOT NOTICEABLE. THE PENDANT CAN MOVE FREELY ALONG THE CHAIN BUT WILL NOT COME OFF THE END. THIS OPAL IS A ROUNDED DOME OVER THE FRONT AND IS SLIGHTLY ROUNDED OVER THE BACK WITH SMOOTH EDGES ON THE SIDES.

THE LAST PHOTO SHOWS THE OPAL WHEN VIEWED FROM THE SIDE WITH THE BACK FACING UP. THIS ETHIOPIAN WELO OPAL IS NATURAL BUT HAS BEEN SMOKE HEATED TO ENHANCE THE FIRE.

THIS TREATMENT IS PERMANENT AND THE COLOR WILL NEVER CHANGE. FROM THE FRONT, THIS OPAL LOOKS BLACK, BUT WHEN HELD UP TO THE LIGHT; THE BODY COLOR IS DARK RED TO DARK CHOCOLATE BROWN AND DISPLAYS VERY BRIGHT OPALESCENT FLASH WHEN VIEWED FROM ALL DIRECTIONS.

THIS OPAL FLASHES MOSTLY RED AND GREEN IN FLUORESCANT AND LOW LIGHT, BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT; THIS OPAL FLASHES AMAZING ELECTRIC ALL SPECTRAL FIRE! YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE YOUR EYES. THE OPALESCANT FIRE INCLUDES RED, PEACH, YELLOW, GREEN AND BLUE FIRE, AS WELL AS RARE PINK, PURPLE, FUCHSIA AND INDIGO FIRE. THIS OPAL IS A SOLID OPAL, NOT A DOUBLET OR TRIPLET LIKE MOST AUSTRALIAN OPALS. A SOLID BLACK 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!
