Fossilised Gem Shell Opal Pendant!
This is a beautiful Gem Opal Pendant.
The opal is a fossilised mussel seashell where over millions of years the original material of the mussel shell has been fully replaced with precious Gem Crystal Opal in a brilliant display of multi-coloured fire!
The fine ochre coloured lines that can be clearly seen, are a result of the shifting of the tetonic plates millions of years ago. This in turn caused stress lines to form in the Opal.
These lines subsequently became stained with the colouring of the surrounding coloured ochre of the sandstone in which the opalised shell was residing deep under the surface of the ancient ocean.
