Opaline Bead Necklace
"This is a large bead. Compare it to the dime. It is magical in sunlight, a true Summer Necklace. The translucency allows it to take on the color you are wearing, because the color passes through it. Opaline was invented in the 18th Century by the French to emulate Opals. It has been used and still is in Northern France to make perfume bottles. Actually it is used in statuary too. You might find yourself wearing this bead often. it is informal, unusual and yes, magical."
