Possibly for the Leo who is sure of herself, I present this hand-carved, black opal, lion with a gorgeous piece of opalized wood, and marquois iolite set in a one of a kind sterling silver bezel. The carving alone is a work of art itself. It was carved by a Native Australian man who my opal supplier works with. I find his carvings are top-notch and so inspirational. This statement piece is strung with large freshwater, cultured, color-enhanced grey pearls with iolite marquois accents as well as blue tourmaline and apatite accents. The pendant measures about 3 1/4" x 1 1/4" The necklace measures about 17 1/4" long.
