A gorgeous, gemmy red cantera opal, clutched by real starling talons.
European starlings are one of the VERY few birds that are legal to collect in the United States, as they are a non-native species and not protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
This piece has been electroplated in 100% copper and then a layer of fine silver. It comes on a 22-inch oxidized sterling silver chain. If you would prefer a different length of chain or leather cord, please include a note at checkout. **Please note - this is a very thin chain and must be handled gently. If you would like a thicker sterling or stainless steel chain, please include a note at checkout.**
All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
