African Opal is a form of jasper originating from Africa. This gemstone comes in a variety of earthy tones, leaning towards a more neutral palette. The beads have a gel-like luster, similar to turquoise, and are very visually intriguing, with swirls of color layered within the primary base color.
African Opal is said to have nurturing qualities, effective in reducing stress and anxiety—choosing this gemstone bead, either as the dominant bead or as a supplemental bead in your beading project, is not only a lovely choice but will produce feelings of calm and peace.
