Opal field: Crystal and white opal fields of Coober Pedy Opal picture guide here

Crystal Opals are mined mainly in Coober Pedy and Andamooka, South Australia where, in times past a lot of ancient sea creatures, particularly shells were found. This particular stone has a more delicate opaque appearance which is totally fascinating.

The pendant has been handmade in the organic leaf design shown on the bale that holds the chain, and the workmanship in the foreground of the stone. If you look to the side you will notice a slight craze which is often a feature of opalized shells.

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.

As with all our jewelry collection, it comes with an international guarantee and you will also get a surprise gift with each order as well as free international shipping. If you are making a gift to someone and you have left it a bit late, ask us about our special ‘late gift card’ free service which is so successful that often its nearly as good as the gift itself because it builds anticipation.
