Wait till the sun catches this earthy boulder opal - then you will see the POPS of colour as red, orange and green opal flashes through the stone!
Boulder opal 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.
* The earthy tones of this boulder opal are complimented by a natural brown leather necklace. with silver clasp.
* There are some natural inclusion lines on this boulder opal that the photos have magnified. These are NOT cracks but actually fine lines. They do not affect the stability of the stone in any way.
