The lapis lazuli beads may be a little darker than how they appear in the photos. The colors of opals will adjust based on the light, and the surface upon which they are placed (see black and white backgrounds) and may appear differently on skin. Due to the iridescent nature of the pieces, variation is to be expected. Please check our care instructions page on Ethiopian opal care.
