    I can never decide which is more fascinating, opals or moonstones. Opals are always so hard to capture in photographs. These two are antique silver with c-clasps. The fly is the first opal piece I purchased. It was in San Antonio at this great antique jewelry store that has since gone out of business. The scorpion is almost three inches in length and the stones have a lot of fire and color. If you have to deal with bugs they should be like these!!!

      Hi, I have A LOT of Scorpio friends!!! I don't know. I have seen
      many of these in moonstones and there is one on Ebay right now
      in the same type of opals and they are all saying circa 1900. They
      do both have the old style c-clasp with no lock on it like
      older brooches have so, can't see that they are circa 1950
      but have nothing to prove it just other listings here and there.

      the varying shades of clear opals are interesting. i wonder if these are american/mexican opals... they don't look like australian opals to me, but i'm not an expert.

      Oh wow Kyra, there beautiful, now the question is are Scorpions suppose to have 6 legs or eight in jewellery? Or does it matter. In real life they have eight.
