Sold, thank you!

The rich Prussian blue of apatite is a splendid backdrop for genuine blue Peruvian opal.  The apatite Aves are untreated with dyes or heating, and are nicely translucent.  The opal Paters are opaque with gorgeous patterns, and colors from pale grass green and intense turquoise to the bold browns of the matrix stone.  Opals such as these are highly prized and uncommonly cut in round beads, but needing only six for the Paters makes them much more affordable in a rosary!  This darling piece has a supple drape and a darling antique reproduction Art Nouveau angels crucifix.  Fantastic color!
