Gold Opal Cabochon Stud
This 3mm Opal Cabochon Stud, set in 14K gold is handmade in Wendy Nichol's NYC jewelry studio.
Opals have a very long history and there are many myths pertaining to the stone. In Medieval times, all blonde maidens wanted a necklace made of opals, as this was considered an absolute guarantee to prevent their hair from fading or darkening. It was believed to have a strong therapeutic value for diseases of the eye, and when worn as an amulet, it would make the wearer immune from disease as well as increase the powers of the eyes and the mind. The Opal was also thought to make a person invisible whenever he or she wished, and for that reason, it was called Patronus forum (patron of thieves). The Opal is a protective stone and represents justice and harmony.
The Opal is amorphous, meaning it has no crystal structure. Opals may be somewhat porous, in which case it is dangerous to immerse them in liquids other than water. To keep your opal from drying, it may be helpful to immerse it in water for several hours from time to time.
