Pendant - long- with light blue colors petrified opalized wood
big size, tear drop shape of light blue color opalized petrified wood with 18 inches sterling silver chain.
Extremely Rare Blue Opal Petrified Wood.
This beautiful material is from an ancient petrified forest on the steep slopes of Mt. Tjikolak in West Java, Indonesia.
It was covered thousands of years ago by an ancient volcanic eruption. Then, over the ages, the wood was fossilized and preserved by opaline silica. The water in that silica was very rich in desolved copper, iron, and maganese. Those copper and maganese deposits are now found inside this blue opal. The colours are radient amd vibriant! The petrified wood is interweaved with rich blue-green opal, and feathered with manganese and copper. It's like looking at the beach, ocean and sky! Every day it's getting harder to find gem-quality material because it's a one source only gemstone!
