Handcrafted butterfly pendant featuring solid, natural opal from 3 different opal fields within Coober Pedy in outback South Australia.
We pride ourselves at Opal Quest with knowing the heritage of every opal we cut and craft. The gem stones in this pendant demonstrate the natural variety between opal even when it is found within just a few kilometres of each other.
The blue green crystal opal at the head of the butterfly was found by Mark of Opal Quest in our Brown's Folly claim, the thorax white opal with firey red flash was found at the 12 mile opal field and the blue crystal tail opal was found at Donna's Rush opal field. All collectively known as Coober Pedy opals.
Each of these gems are naturally formed, solid opals.
The hand crafted butterfly pendant features solid 925 silver with 9ct gold edging. The bale hidden behind the pendant is large enough to take a variety of necklaces or could be converted by the wearer into a brooch with the simple addition of a discreet safety pin.
A gorgeous display of Australian opal in a bespoke pendant.
Opal always looks best in natural sunlight. Photographs never bring out the true beauty of opal!! This pendant looks even more beautiful in real life than in the photos.
