The most rare type of Opal stone is fire opal. It is named by its color. Opal stone is extracted mostly in Mexica and Kutahya in the world. But Turkey is not extracting this stone anymore. In the early 1900s, the Germans processed these mines and carried the stones abroad.
925 sterling silver is used in this necklace. The ends of the silver sticks were turned into guverse. After the stone was wrapped with this cage, black oxide was applied on the ends to give the appearance of a burnt matchstick. The yellow parts are gold plated.
Guverse: Tiny balls made of gold or silver.
