Bright Red Pendant | Opal
A dark pink and white matrix holds a bright and clear orange red opal and a patch of creamy orange opal. The many colours quickly flash throughout the opal. Mixed into the matrix is a hundred tiny patches of bright orange red opal. Behind the opal is a plate of stamp work coming out from the opals base.
This Opal is from Magdalena Mexico. The opals here have been mined by indigenous peoples for thousands of years, but after the Spanish conquistadors came to Mexico, the location of the mines was lost until the 1800’s. The mines here are majority local run, and are all polished by independent polishers in the area. Wanderground buys stones directly from polishers, going door to door in communities asking to buy Opal.
