Featuring an incredible Queensland boulder black opal this wonderful piece is created in 18 karat gold and is accented with twinkling Russian cut diamonds.  The Tortoise represents wisdom, longevity and prosperity.  The tenacity and resoluteness of this long lived creature symbolizes the patience and discipline necessary in obtaining life goals and is thought to support the universe with its powerful strength and knowledge.  This symbolic analogy is captured in this rare black opal with its tenacious 100 million year long odyssey of slow and steady gemological creation.  Ware it as a pendant or fold down the precision hinged and locking bail and ware as a brooch or display it as a standing sculpture.
