A ‘Yowah nut’ is really a small boulder opal which is found in the Yowah opal mine in south western Queensland, not for from the town of Cunnamulla. The reason its called a ‘nut’ is because the smallish lumps of boulder opal have a similarity to a nut. When the rough opal piece is sliced with a diamond saw, after probably a thousand efforts to find the color, eventually you could find a ‘kernal’ of brilliant opal color, often mixed with all sorts of patterns and colors that will amaze you. Opal Yowah nuts are often kept as rough specimens for collectors, or fashioned into finished gems to be worn as rings, pendants, bracelets and all sorts of other jewelry.
This particular stone has striped boulder from Yowah field with green opal highlights set in heavy 925 sterling silver.
