Opal Ring – cream opal
Boulder opal ring Description:
With synthetics taking over our clothes, our gemstones and our food, it’s nice to wear something that is right out of the ground. This amazing piece has precious opal mixed with the natural ironstone ‘mother.’
The effect is often amazing with all sorts of shapes and patterns that add interest to the jewelry.
Opal Boulder abstracts
The term ‘abstract’ is one that we at opalmine have coined ourselves out of frustration to know what to call these amazing free form boulder opal stones. Over the years they have had various names.
The old miners and opal cutters called them ‘fun stones’ because at the time everyone thought that the only thing people would be interested in was the opal itself.
Little did we realize that the opal in combination with the boulder ironstone would have such an appeal that at times it even eclipses the demand for full faced opals.
