This natural dendritic opal gemstone, cut into an oval shaped cabochon, measures 40 mm x 18 mm. Reminds me of a snowy mountain slope on an early morning, winter day. Wrapped in argentium wire.
Finished size is 65 mm x 21 mm. Weight 0.5 oz.
Dendritic refers to the arborescent (having the form or characteristics of a tree) crystalline growth within the stone.
