Origin of this Opal

Queensland is the only place in the world as far as we can tell, where boulder opal is found.

Larger boulders with veins of opal range from Quilpie in the south to Winton area in the north.

Description

Boulder Opal Pendant

This stunning natural boulder opal matrix is definitely one of a kind with it’s translucent jelly blue/mauve and green sparkles against the natural brown ironstone. Set in a nice simple sterling silver pendant in order to not take away any attention from the stone.

About boulder opals

Boulder opals are mined in Queensland Australia which gives you the assurance that you are getting a gem that is secure and will not lose its color like so many stones from wet areas of the earth do. This particular stone has a more delicate crystal and translucent appearance which is totally fascinating.

These gems have had thousands of years to dry out and solidify in the Australian outback heat. The brilliant color comes in small veins throughout the mother stone which is brown ironstone.

The opal cutter uses diamond blades to extract the color and has to decide the direction of the clean-up process which is a very skillful time-consuming job.

These opals are not porous which means they will not suck water or moisture into them when exposed to dampness such as when washing your hands or taking a shower.
