Mexican Opal Dragons Breath Leaf Pendant Necklace - Red Blue Fire Opal Amulet - Dragon Fire Pendant - Vintage Opal Necklace
This necklace is stunning! The focal point of this Victorian style pendant is the large glass cabochon which has been made in the style of a Mexican Opal also known as Dragon's Breath (made from glass not a gemstone). With each slight turn, the colors shift from deep scarlet red to lightening strikes of blues!
Mexican Opal Cabochon is set securely in a lovely antique silver leaf pendant setting which measures approximately 1.5 inch x 2 inches and is attached to a silver plated link chain with lobster clasp in the length of your choosing.
Mexican Opal, also known as Dragon’s Breath, is a collector’s nickname for man-made stones that are made of glass and mixed with certain metals to produce a brilliant color shifting effect. Colors shift from a deep to bright red with flashes of electric blue and even purples. The flashes of color from within the stone are known as the "breath" from which the name is derived. Mexican Opals were first used in jewelry in the early 1900’s to simulate fire/jelly opals. Highly collectible and rare – this lovely stone is a certain conversation piece and will become a cherished favorite.
