Earthy tones, uniquely Australian boulder opal pendant from Queensland.
Shaped into a large soft tear drop with a custom sterling silver clasp this ironstone boulder opal shows off natural earthy tones with a tiny vein of green coloured opal down the face that catches in the sunlight.
Boulder opal is unique. It consists of a mix of host matrix material, generally iron stone, with veins or flecks of opal incorporated within it. Boulder opal with its host matrix is considered to be as valuable as other solid Australian opal. The beauty of this stone is in the colour variations in the host matrix as well as the opal itself. See our blog post on boulder opal for further information.
Opal always looks best in natural sunlight. Photographs never bring out the true beauty of opal. Any minor imperfections, if present, will not be detailed in the description but our photos have been taken to be as honest as possible. Any imperfection we think will impact the stone's stability will be detailed. Please look at the photos closely before making your purchase.
