Opalite Peanuts (10mm)
Sterling Silver seed beads

Hangs down delicately from your ear just over an 1.5″ (4cm)

Its my birthday this month and my favorite semi-precious gemstone and birthstone is Opal and I adore the color pale pink. In New Zealand where I am from, the Cherry Blossom trees were always in flower at the end of October and it is a wonderful sight. 

For those of you that that are wondering “What is opalite?”

Opalite is an opalized volcanic ash that may occur with opal and agate. The key distinction between opalite and opal is that opalite is very hard. Opalite is associated with deep beds of volcanic ash and occurs with deposits of fossil palm root and palm wood. Opalite can be a variety of colours, including white, tan, brown, green and peach.

To enter the draw to win these beautiful opalite and cherry blossom inspired earrings is easy! Just head on over to my ‘Rock Ribbons’ Facebook page become a fan (if you aren’t already) and leave a nice comment below. How simple is that?!

This competition will be open until the end of October and the winner will be chosen at random,  so good luck everyone and I can’t wait to see your comments.

    It’s my birthday this month, too, and Opal is one of my favourite gemstones. (It’s true, I’m not trying to suck up!) Lots of special people are born in October, including my sister-in-law, mother-in-law, grandfather-in-law and my eldest daughter! Bring on the cake! Hope you have a lovely birthday too!
