Please click on the "enlarge" button to view a more detailed image of the centerpiece, a remarkable evocation of Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire (see below). The large centerpiece cabochon is cut to frame the desert view and is beautifully polished. Irregular chunks of dendritic (common) opal pick up the colors of the Chinese picture rock and their substantial size supports the composition. Playful fringes blow in the evening desert breeze. Warning: purchase of this necklace may induce you to visit one of our beautiful deserts to enjoy the "ocean with its life underground" with its brilliant stars.

One-of-a-kind, subject to prior sale
