Australian Andamooka Opal green sparkle Sterling pendant

A nice freeform piece of Andamooka matrix opal. This stone has beautiful pinprick green sparkles that shimmer as you move the stone, sometimes teal or lime green with a hint of blue. As with all opal, it is best viewed in direct light. It has been heat treated to darken the background, then polished. I have wire wrapped it in Sterling silver wire and the finished pendant is 30 mm long. Great for guys and gals. It comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag. A very different and beautiful rare gemstone, totally unique and getting more rare by the day!


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. 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.
