Ethiopian Welo Opal Nugget and Malachite 14k Gold Drop Earrings
The Ethiopian Welo Opal Nugget and Malachite 14k Gold Drop Earrings are one of a kind pair. I created them with 2mm Malachite dice faceted beads wrapped with 26 guage 14k gold wire. The hooks are handcrafted in a unique pointed shape. I hand selected the Opal pair to match. The earrings are 3 1/2 inches long. The pair weighs 2.06 grams total.

Malachite inspires risk taking and promotes leadership. A very protective stone, it absorbs environmental pollutants and negative energy.
Opal is a stone of Inspiration, it ignites our inner fire and stimulates creativity. A Heart and Crown Chakra stone, opal inspires hope and love and well as heightens the Intuition. Opals, due to their rainbow flashes of color, actually balance all the chakras, connecting the lower with the higher chakras. Because they are so porous, they take in negative energy and transmute it to positive evergy, making Opal a wonderful stone to combat depression. Opal assists in times of transformation and rebirth and helps to better handle all of life's changes. Opal is particularly helpful with changes that are good for the wearer. Opal is a symbol of innocence and purity. Opal helps to increase memory as well as enhances self esteem and self worth. Opal has a strong soothing energy. Despite historical rumors that opals are bad luck, they are in fact, one of the best stones to promote good luck! Due to their connection to water, Opals are linked to the Moon's energies and are a wonderful stone to soothe emotions, especially for water signs.
