Rare and Fine White Crystal Opal Rope Length Necklace
Cooper Pedy, South Australia, Australia
Large necklaces of fine white crystal opal beads are no longer emerging from Australia. The present example, weighing approximately 400 carats, consisting of 91 beads, is definitely a "collection piece"--notable for the exacting symmetry of its spherical beads which graduate from a substantial 13.0 mm in the center to 7.5 mm at the ends. It would have taken years to gather such a collection of beads to form a unified single, striking necklace. Completed by an 18K yellow gold clasp, length 36in
