Little fairy opal and labrodorite temple
Fairy opalized sandstone, which is sandstone ( mother rock of opal ) impregnated with small grains of precious opal.
Opalised sandstone is only found in Queensland Australia.
It is not particularly common, and opal colours can vary from blue to all the colours of the rainbow ( the latter being rather rare). There are subtle sparkling flashes of vibrant red, blue, green and yellow throughout this piece of fairy opal.
A stone of transformation, Labradorite is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance. It balances and protects the aura, raises consciousness and grounds spiritual energies. Excellent for strengthening intuition - promoting psychic abilities.
Set into satin brushed sterling silver with two hinges for fluid movement and a gently curved Little Temple bail.
2.5 inches long and 1.5 inches at the widest point.
