Boulder opal ring featuring matrix stone
Boulder Opal Matrix set in silver from the Winton Opal fields.
Opal ring Stone Color:
Matrix actually means ‘mother’ in this case the opal color is the ‘baby’ held in the arms of its mother.
Green with other rainbow colors against brown ironstone. When boulder opal was first discovered in Australia, they found stones such as the one shown in this lovely ring, consisting of flecks of colors throughout the ironstone mother, the miners really did not know what to do with them.
They could not figure out how to make use of the colors until the idea came to make the ironstone the background feature of the gemstone and allow the brilliant sparkles of color to be featured against this background. This particular ring is set sideways on the finger in an interesting way.
Its setting is simple so that the stone itself is the feature. you will notice that the silver in this setting is rolled into the stone in what is called a ‘bezel’ setting rather than claws. This is considered a safer way of setting as claws tend to catch on things at times.
