african opal jasper • blue topaz • 14kt gold filled
The Mother Earth Necklace was inspired by my travels to South America where I learned about the present dangers of our rainforests and endangered species. During my time in the Amazon, I learned about many of the dangers these natural rainforests were experiencing with loss of habitat and poor water retention due to deforestation. The African Opal Jasper stone with its various earth tones and milky blues signify the hope for our rainforests and our planet. The blue topaz from which the opal is suspended represents water -- Mother Earth's most essential element
***Please keep in mind that African Opal Jasper is a natural stone and that the shape will vary slightly from piece to piece
African Opal Jasper is a natural jasper that comes from Africa. It has a jelly like luster similar to Turquoise and is often confused with Variscite, a stone found in Nevada, Utah, and Queensland, Australia. Due to natural variations in its coloring, there is some debate over what the stone should be called. Some argue that the stone should not be referred to as an opal since it lacks the common opal qualities. The stone is generally believed to fall within the jasper family due to its gel like translucence, flecked with blues and greens much like that of Variscite. African Opal Jasper is believed to stabilize the heart chakra and provide calming and purifying properties. Its translucence helps one find inner peace and alignment while aiding in emotional healing.

Why choose gold filled?
If you want high quality jewelry that you can wear all the time without the high price of solid gold, gold filled jewelry is your best option. Gold filled jewelry is not as common among larger jewelry companies because it cannot be manufactured or cast. Each piece of jewelry must be carefully made by hand and is therefore more difficult and more expensive to make. Here at CLD, we feel it is worth it to go the extra mile to create high quality jewelry that WE want to wear and are OBSESSED with. We hope you will feel the same :)
