Mix & Match Stacking Bracelet 3: Boulder Opal & Turquoise
AAA quality turquoise from the Sleeping Beauty mine in Arizona brings out the green and blue opalescent veins in the brown boulder opal. Accented with silver beads. Sterling silver clasp and ring. Can be worn as a single bracelet or paired with my other Mix & Match bracelets. Bead size: 3mm. 7".
I've included photos showing combinations of other Mix & Match bracelets and also how to link the clasps together when stacking.
Boulder Opal is a unique and beautiful opal found only in Queensland, Australia. As the name suggests, these opals are mined from large ironstone boulders underground. You can see the thin veins of colorful opal that forms in the cracks and fissures.
The Sleeping Beauty Mine is now a closed mine, making turquoise mined from it increasingly more valuable and precious. The gemstone got its name from the mountain where it is mined, which resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with her arms crossed.
