5mm Cabochon Natural Australian Opal Earrings in Sterling Silver. Australian opals are traditionally the most desired opals. These opals are AAA grade, have not been treated, and have an incredible luster. Opals are one of the birthstones for October. Opals are hydrophilic meaning they love and will absorb water, a percentage of an opal's chemical composition is actually water. Opals are said to encourage freedom and independence, and stimulate originality and creativity.
Try to remember to take off your opal earrings when showering so they do not absorb any soap or shampoo and loose some of their vibrance.
