Every single gemstone is solidly set in 925 sterling silver. The design is tasteful - an exquisite pendant with earrings made from Indian craftsmanship.
About Dendritic Opal - Milky Opal:
The 'milky opal' belongs to the common opals as well as its varieties dendrite opal, moss opal etc.
The dendritic opal is a milky opal with dendritic inclusions. All dendritic opal gems are characterised by dark, dendritic deposits, some of trees, shrubs, ferns or just a moss (= moss opal) (dendritic, branched, ramified).
These inclusions are mostly iron and/or manganese solutions that have penetrated the stone.
