Aurora: Gorgeous and very hard to find 8mm Created Black Opal Ball Stud Earrings on solid 925 Sterling Silver posts. Made with synthetic Black Opal these are a gorgeous addition to any wardrobe and an ideal gift as the birthstone for October. For those that aren't aware of it, synthetic Opal is actually preferred to natural opal for jewelry items. Natural Opal is not particularly well-suited to being used in jewelry since it's a relatively soft gemstone, breaks easily and has to be protected from sunlight and many chemicals.
