Black Opal Pendant Description Style of pendant: The center stone has been set with a plain bezel. They are all unique, and the imaginative designs bring out the beauty in these magnificent pieces. The style of these pendants was inspired by a mixture of shapes and patterns of the Australian outback, combined with Italian imagination and creativity. A work of art that will endure for a very long time.
Dynamic thrusts of green, with a touch of blue, emanate from deep inside the stone, creating an enduring fascination, every time you look at your Black Opal pendant, or it is seen on your neck. The dark color of this stone reflects and contrasts nicely with natural skin color, or with a lighter outfit.
Black Opals can be found in most of the Australian Opal fields but the most internationally recognized are those from Lighting Ridge.
