JEWELS AND STONES: Opal by NEFUR-STUDIOS JEWELS AND STONES: Opal by NEFUR-STUDIOS
First jewel of my Jewles and stones series, opal.
***EDIT****Okay, let me get a few things clear since a few people have talked to me via note or otherwise about this.
Yes, the cutting is ruff and the horse is REALLY shiny, it's polished stone it's supposed to be like that. Second yes, I know the hair isn't the best, but after 8 fucking hours of fiddling with it, I gave up, and yes, I know the shadow under the horse needs to b a bit darker, but I'm not fixing it right now, if you don't like the manip, then just don't fave or comment and find something you do like, cos I'm sick of putting up with your nit picking bullshit.


About opals
"Opal is an amorphous form of silica related to quartz, a mineraloid form, not a mineral. 3% to 21% of the total weight is water, but the content is usually between 6% to 10%. It is deposited at a relatively low temperature and may occur in the fissures of almost any kind of rock, being most commonly found with limonite, sandstone, rhyolite, marl and basalt. Opal is the national gemstone of Australia, which produces 97% of the world's supply. This includes the production of the state of South Australia, which amounts to around 80% of the world's supply.

Opal's internal structure makes it diffract light; depending on the conditions in which it formed it can take on many colors. Opal ranges from clear through white, gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, rose, pink, slate, olive, brown, and black. Of these hues, the reds against black are the most rare, whereas white and greens are the most common. It varies in optical density from opaque to semi-transparent. For gemstone use, its natural color is often enhanced by placing thin layers of opal on a darker underlying stone, like basalt."
-Source: Wikipedia.
"More than any other gem, each opal is unique. No other stone has as rich and varied a folklore. Opals are also the most delicate gems commonly worn."

Opal is the birth stone of Libra, the seventh sign of the zodiac.
