What is Ocean Blue Opalescence?
Ocean Blue Opalescence is a man made material that consists of primarily Polymer that is used to stabilize Silica particles rather than hydrated Silica (like natural Opal). This gemstone like material is very strong and you will experience less cracking and crazing that can be detrimental when using natural opal in jewelry or crafting.
Our Opalescence is created by heat hardening resin that stabilizes Silica particles to create this amazing imitation Opal with a very unique color pattern. The color pattern for Opalescence is a marbled wave like pattern with high levels of transparency. The first form of Opalescence is a large slab that is then cut and shaped into the many different bead sizes we offer. Then the beads are drilled and perfected for jewelry and craft making.
Please keep in mind that the material can only withstand heat up to a rough estimate of 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Please proceed at your own risk.
