Mermaid Opal Talisman • This Stunning Australian Opal is set in oxidized sterling silver with a 16” 10K Rose Gold chain.  The earliest mermaid-like figure was likely the ancient Syrian goddess Atargatis, who watched over the fertility of her people, as well as blessing their day to day lives & well being.  She, was depicted with a woman’s torso & the tail of a fish & was accordingly associated with water.  In most folklore, mermaids were often associated with misfortune & death, luring errant sailors off course and even onto rocky shoals to their doom. Opal in lore is often thought of as a talisman of passion, new experiences, release & creativity.
