Carved Opal of An Eagle - FJ.3263
Price: $1100.00
Since the dawn of time, in both the old world and the new, the eagle has been revered as a sacred bird. Zeus, king of the classical gods, is usually shown accompanied by a fierce eagle, while eagles with widespread wings crowned the military standards of Rome. In Ancient America, this noble bird was often worshiped as a God in its own right, and even today it remains as the emblem of great nations and dynasties. This exquisite pendant, carved in opulent opal, depicts a conquering eagle descending from the skies. Symbolic of noble grace and power, this is a jewel to be worn by those of independent spirit. The opal has been prized since antiquity. Within its depths, one sees the rich variety of colors for which other gems are famed: the purple of amethyst, the red of ruby, the sea green of emerald as well as gold and silver. The name of the gem is thought to derive from the word ophthalmius, pertaining to the eye, and the stone is valued for its ability to avert evil. In the east, opals are sought as amulets to prevent disease, and they are also believed to improve eyesight. Any person gazing upon this brilliant gem will be rewarded with beauty. - (FJ.3263)Origin: Australia Collection: Opal Pendant Medium: Opal/Gold
