This Mexican Fire Opal reminded me of the tops of the bullrushes behind my home. So I created an oxidized Sterling silver pendant with images of reeds and stems in the marsh. It is on a 36" long darkened silver-plated chain.
The full pendant from the top of the bail to the bottom is 3.25 inches. At the widest part (at the top) the pendant is 1 inch wide. The stone is 1.75 inches long.
The Mexican Fire Opal has strong colour and pattern and was hand collected by am Ottawa lapidarist colleague while in Mexico.
