Pink Opal Necklace: Protect Your Loved Ones
Life, as we know it, is full of unexpected challenges and hurdles.
At this time, almost everyone needs some peace of mind, and that includes people who are dear to us.
As we can't always be by their side, there's something like a pink opal necklace that should remind them that they are not alone.
When simple words can't work, consider the encouraging power of the pink opal stone.
Basic Info About Pink Opal Necklaces
Common opals, also called potch, are a variety of gems that do not exhibit the flicking play of color which appears on luxury opals.
The color phenomenon manifests itself through sparkles, flashes, or broad patterns of various pure colors.
They are reflected at many different angles when a bright, but relatively small light source shines through the gemstone.
These hues appear depending on the angle of incidence of the light, and the opal's structure. It also means that the colors change as you turn the jewel relative to the light source.
While common opals don’t have this feature, they do appear in a variety of beautiful colors that includes a range of delicate pastels that adds to their charm.
Common opals come in a more excellent range of colors than most other gems.
However, you cannot see these jewels in commercial or designer jewelry, which suggests a lack of appreciation for these stones resulting in limited supplies in the market.
The upside to this is that the common opal is not extremely expensive, and beautiful pieces are available in jewelry boutiques at relatively affordable prices.
Pink opal stones are probably the most sought after. They make a great necklace pendant, especially one worn close to the heart.
Lockets made of pink opal, in particular, hold so much meaning that they make a sound gift for a spectrum of occasions.
Pink opal is the only opaque variety among the family of common opals.
Its colors range from bright baby girl pink to a pink-white, cream, or even lavender.
Pink opal gradually adopted the name “Peppermint candy stone” because of its close resemblance to small candies. Other popular names of this stone include:
- Pink Andean Opal
- Angelskin Opal
- Andean Opal
- Silicified palygorskite (scientific name)
Significant sources of natural pink opals are in South American countries, the US, and Western Australia.
The brightest and most impressive looking pink opals are known to be abundant in Peru. In fact, because of its natural beauty, the Peruvian opal is the national stone of the country.
The Peruvian Opal is formed from sediments of igneous rock with high silica content at low temperatures.
These stones are relatively rare, and vast deposits remain in the Andes mountains.
According to the folklores, the Inca Goddess of fruitfulness, Pachamama, provided the stones as a reward for the ancient people.

Where does Pink Opal come from?
The Pink Peruvian Opal is high in silica and is a light to bright pink chalcedony.
If mixed with other impurities, these pink stones do make beautiful specimens. Some of them sport unique rough formations of different shades of pink.
Peruvian opal carvings are exceptionally easy to carve and are popularly known to have good polish.
Pink opal forms after the dissolution of silica through the bubbling water coming from the volcanic activity.
This is also the reason why many specimens contain pink opal mixed with minerals as rhyolite. Other pink opal specimens may display stalactites, each coated with chalcedony.
However, there are instances when hyalite opal pockets form, and these are crystal clear.
As cheap as they are, there are instances where stores sell synthetic substitutes as real opal stones.
While synthetic gemstones are not fake because they have the same chemical structure as their natural counterparts, there is a significant difference between their values.
Additionally, synthetic opals may be considered as imitations because they contain additional materials such as different types of plastic that are not present in natural opals.
One characteristic that distinguishes the naturals is that it is less porous than the synthetic equivalents.
Moreover, synthetic opals have a lower density, which means they tend to be lighter than the real ones.

Why Is A Pink Opal Necklace Special?
Pink Opal is said to be a powerful crystal, especially when it comes in contact with one’s heart.
Pink opal necklaces, in particular, are used to activate and unlock one’s heart chakra and imbue their aura with calming, gentle vibrations. It is the perfect stone to carry when you are struggling with sadness.
For this reason, Pink opal necklaces are often a gift for people suffering from anxiety, depression, and an extreme feeling of loneliness.

Besides that, the stone also urges people to look within and reinforce our connection with their inner self.
Many believed that the stone allows them to realize that we can be independent. This opportunity gradually teaches us to become stronger individuals and not depend too much on the presence and support of our loved ones.
At the same time, the pink opal shows people how resilient their heart truly is.
By allowing people to turn to themselves and begin to work inwards, emotional strain weighing on their heart begins to fade gradually.
Moreover, the variety of common opals are known as stones of spiritual awakening because of its powerful vibrations.

While traditional lockets have several types with different designs, their way of storing photos is basically the same.
They open up to reveal a small space where you can fit your chosen photo.
Fitting photos into traditional lockets may prove to be difficult because the photo needs to match the shape of your jewelry, and to cut a picture into a locket can be especially tricky.
Evermeé lockets, on the other hand, are not as troublesome.
They have an NFC tag placed inside, which allows you to upload a photo directly digitally into the locket.
Retrieving or viewing the picture is just as easy.
Evermeé has a user-friendly app used for uploading or retrieving photos on the gemstone.
Nowadays, it is considerably easy to store countless numbers of photos digitally and have them deleted quite as easily as well.
Saving pictures to represent memories has gradually lost its recognition.
However, with Evermeé's pink opal lockets, anyone can choose a single photo filled with memories and turn it into something longer-lasting.
