Moroccan agate, olive opal, butter opal, citrine, peridot and red aventurine with gold embellishments necklace.
Moroccan agate is characterized by a wide variety of colors and patterns found throughout Morocco.
There are two types of opal: precious and common. Precious opal displays iridescence, common opal does not. Depending on the conditions in which it formed, opal may be transparent, translucent or opaque. Olive opal is only found in Tanzania Africa.
Peridot is transparent with a distinct oily luster. Peridot’s color ranges from yellow-green, green with a golden tone, olive or bottle green, deep chartreuse, or simply a brilliant light green. The amount of iron present in peridot causes the shade and depth of the green; the deeper the green, the smaller the amount of iron present.
Peridot is the National gem of Egypt. Ancient Egyptians called it “the gem of the sun.” Peridot was mined for over 3,500 years on St Johns Island. Up till the 19th Century, Egypt had a monopoly on the peridot mines. .
Red Aventurine is from the Quartz group and is characterized by brilliant inclusions of Mica or other minerals that give the stone a glistening or shimmering effect.
