Skipping Stones Ring {size 5 1/2}

0.00

A dendritic opal mimicking a winter landscape and a flashy rainbow moonstone rest within fine silver scalloped bezels, atop a sterling silver backplate with handmade bead accents flanking each side. My maker's mark and .925 are included on the back for authenticity. A wide, textured and hammered band adorns the back. This ring was given a black patina and then brought to a soft, satin, icy grey finish to compliment the stones.

Also called Merlinite, or dendritic agate. This opal variety is termed "dendritic" due to its internal collection of dendrites. Dendrites are fern-like inclusions of iron, manganese, or other metallic oxides that create bold patterns within the gem. Typically, dendritic opals are cut into slices to best exhibit nature's artwork. As you might guess, these pieces are one-of-a-kinds, as no two dendritic patterns are exactly the same. Usually these opals are white, yellow, blue, green or pink and show the black inclusions well.

Rainbow moonstone is a part of the Feldspar group, which makes up approximately 60% of the Earth's crust. It is the name given to a variety of Labradorite that exhibits a blue or multi-colored flash. It is related to Moonstone, but the two materials are not the same, even though they are sometimes referred to as the same.
