There are two broad classes of opal, precious and common. Precious opal displays iridescence, common opal does not. The beads used here are an opaque common opal in varying shades of yellow and golden. Argentium wire is used for the hand formed earwire and dangle.
Earrings measure 2¼ inches from top of earwire to bottom of dangle and weigh 0.1 oz each.
