Blue Wire-Wrapped Opalite with Copper and Gold Ornamentation
Opalite is a synthetic glass gemstone that possesses a multi-colour shine such as opal does. The stone remains a cloudy blue-white until the sunlight touches it, at which point yellows, pinks, greens, and a variety of colours emerge. To match its blue-white undertone, I wrapped the stone in blue plated copper wire (18 gag) with copper and gold wire ornamentation (26 and 24 gage respectively). The piece hangs on a dark copper chain that lets it hang to mid-chest level.
Meaning of Opalite
Opalite is known as a subtle high-energy stone. It helps stabilise mood swings and allows one to build on communication skills, either daily or metaphysical.
