Australian Andamooka purple Matrix Opal Sterling silver wire wrapped pendant

A gorgeous freeform long oval 20 mm of Andamooka Matrix opal. This stone glitters with pinfire sparks of beautiful violet-purple on the lower end and green at the top. Better in real life, it's hard to catch the moving colours in a photo. It has been heat treated to provide a darker background for the colour and then polished. Wrapped with Sterling silver wire 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, I love this one.

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 and more rare type of Australian opal. There is not much material coming from this field these days and therefore this type of opal is becoming 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.
