This Week’s Theme: Opal
How about something a little more abstract as in this unique handstamped sterling silver, kyanite, and opal pendant by Wisconsin jewelry maker, Jeanne at Two Chicks Too on Etsy. Look at all the mandalas she’s included in this 3/4 inch piece! I love how the opal sits atop the silver spiral, as if giving it a place of honor.
About Kyanite from CrystalVaults.com:
Kyanite is valuable in the industrial world for heat resistance, used in high refractory porcelain, refractory bricks, mortars, kiln furniture and foundry molds, in the auto and railroad industries for brake shoes, grinding wheels and cutting disks, and in the standard porcelain of dentures, sinks and bathroom fixtures. Kyanite crystals that are highly transparent and attractive in color can be cut into cabochon and faceted gemstones, and are considered to be “exotic” gems.
Kyanite inspires loyalty and fair treatment to others. It assists in working through disagreements and disputes, and can aid in repairing damaged relationships. It is beneficial in negotiations, diplomatic missions, arbitration and other forms of communication between disharmonious people, allowing disparate energies to move into resonance and find a common frequency.
