An offer like this will not last long! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Juan Wallace, out of genuine sterling silver, along with real Jet, and man made Opal inlay. The inlay is delicately set, while mini stamped beads and twisted silver can be seen accenting for a fascinating finish.
Most people know Opal for its distinctive play of color, it is a semi-transparent solidified mineral composed of silicon and water, and it gets its name from the Latin word "Oplus" meaning precious stone. Opal is the birthstone for October. It is believed to release self-consciousness allowing spontaneous action, and awakens psychic and mystical qualities.
