Opalite Swarovski Crystal Iridescent Bullet Pendant

  • $ 3000

A recycled 22 caliber silver bullet shell casing holds an opalite crystal point. I added a Swarovski aurora borealis channel crystal and a 24 inch silver filled chain.

Opalite is an iridescent stone that can be clear or milky. It mimics the flash and color of an opal, but it is man made. Opalite can stabilize emotions and is an ideal stone for meditation and visualization. It helps in understanding of the subconscious and aids in spiritual rebirth and growth. It will strengthen resolve and is often useful in business endeavors. Opalite is beneficial in attaining a state of peacefulness and serenity. It is a good stone to use for REM sleep and can be useful with lucid dreaming.

Some people have the misconception that a man-made stone is less effective than a natural gemstone when used in a metaphysical sense. This isn't really true. Because lab grown or man-made gemstones are made up of the same chemical compounds as most natural occurring gemstones, there is little difference in their mineral properties.

From the ISG:
"Creating gemstones in a lab is an art that must be learned and perfected using imagination and skill. Lab created gemstones are not imitations, they are newly created gemstones that are of the same make up as the mined gemstones. So by definition, gemstones created in a lab cannot be called synthetic because rather than imitate a gemstone...they ARE gemstones.

It fact, quartz has been hydrothermally grown for the electronics industry since the time of World War II. As a result the perfection of the crystal growth is so refined that the ability to identify hydrothermal quartz is virtually impossible without scientific equipment."

From the GIA:
"The hydrothermal growth process is slow and expensive. But it’s the only method for successfully growing created quartz. This process requires heat and pressure that mimics the conditions deep in the earth, resulting in the formation of natural gems. Nutrients are dissolved in a water solution, and then the crystals form as the solution cools."

Stones may have some imperfections and inclusions. Be sure to check all photos, including the zoom feature, for details about a particular stone. Please see photo with ruler for size. Colors may vary with individual monitors.

Many stones are susceptible to fading, and they should be kept out of direct sunlight. Do not use hot water or salt water to clean them.
