Andamooka Matrix Opal rainbow Sterling silver wire wrapped pendant
A sweet freeform piece 15 mm of hard Andamooka Matrix opal in a rough triangle. This stone glitters with strong pinfire sparks of green and blue that show best in light. This is the sort of opal I love, an offcut that has character that deserves a sterling frame. It has been heat treated to provide a darker background for the colour and then polished. Wrapped with Sterling silver wire with a weave bail, the finished pendant is 35 mm long and comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag. A very different and beautiful gemstone, totally unique.

Andamooka Opal
Andamooka opal comes from a small outback town in South Australia. The work involved in mining this opal, the small field it comes from and the gorgeous results mean that it is a unique type of Australian opal. There is not much material coming from this field these days and therefore this type of opal is becoming more rare and expensive. It has ‘pinfire’ flash, little specks of colour in a host stone, and the greater the concentration the more brilliant the colour.

My Opals
I source my opals from local miners, cut and polish most myself. It's often a messy thing to do requiring a lot of patience and persistence, and a glorious delight to find that colour within a stone. I tend to like the unusual ones, the unique and different that are often overlooked yet bring such beauty. All opals are solid unless otherwise stated. The essence of Australia, a wonderful gift.
