    It looks like a big opal in center which says this was no a cheap piece . Hard to tell much for me photo to small. Very cool piece I love it .

    Yes it is an opal,the entire piece is made out of mineral stones,can't tell what all pieces are,but it is carved very well,a beautiful piece just don't have any information on maker or which tribe

    A truly beautiful piece.Try researching bird headressess and meaning you may find the answer.
    Not sure on gemstones and actual carved stone
