One of the most stunning gemstones of the world, with unbelievable variety of vibrant colors and beautiful patterns....Opal is a hydrated amorphous form of silica, with a relatively high water content. Gem-quality opal is one of the most spectacular gemstones. A single stone can flash every color of the spectrum with an intensity and quality of color that can surpass the "fire" of diamond. From all the amazing color variations this is my favorite: like the silhouette of autumn tree branches and falling leaves against the deep blues of the sky.
This image is one of the 12 pieces of my series titled The wooden jewelry box, inspired by the beautiful colors, structures and details of gemstones, crystals and trees. All pieces are available as print.
