Cherry Blossom Crushed Opal

PRIMARY COLOR: Pink, White

SECONDARY COLORS:  Blue, Green, Red

Our Cherry Blossom synthetic gemstone looks like it almost bloomed right out of the richest Japanese soil. The pastel shades of pink perfectly swirled with hues of white, makes the most delicate color combination. The Cherry Blossom Opal is unique for it's color shifting abilities. This pale color has a stunning rainbow fire running through the stone material, like a rainbow pierced through a Japanese Cherry Blossom tree. 

What is Cherry Blossom Crushed Opal?

Cherry Blossom Crushed Opal is a synthetic lab-made material that consists of Silica and Polymer rather than hydrated silica (natural opal). The polymer stabilizes our opal which in turn makes it easier for jewelry making. You will experience less cracking and crazing that can be detrimental when using natural opal in jewelry. By using a polymer it also creates a slightly softer product making it superior for turning and cabbing. Our crushed opal does not fall victim to color fading and is resistant to chemicals such as acetone and alcohol.
