Drusy, Pearl, & Opal Sparkles


Tabra’s one of a kind bracelet combines boulder opal, rainbow drusy, and pearl. In the Middle Ages, opal was considered a stone that could provide great luck because it was believed to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in the color spectrum of the opal. Opal has been esteemed since Roman times and has been variably regarded as giving the power of foresight and warding off disease. Unfortunately a novel by Sir Walter Scott connected opal with bad luck, and diamond merchants encouraged this theory when opals started to vie commercially with diamonds. As a precious opal is rotated through different angles of viewing, if the spheres of silica are large enough to diffract red wavelengths of light, the full rainbow of spectral colours will be progressively observed, starting with red and progressing through orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Length 18.4 cm, 7.15 inch
