Andamooka Matrix Solid Opal Sterling silver wire wrapped pendant

A lovely large 20 x 15 mm piece of Andamooka opal. This stone has a beautiful pin-fire green and blue sparkles. As with all opal, it is best viewed in direct light. It has been heat treated with sugar to darken the background, this doesn't fade. I have wire wrapped it in Sterling silver wire and the finished pendant is 35mm long. It comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag. A very different and beautiful rare gemstone, totally unique.

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 matrix opal. There is not much material coming from this field these days and therefore this type of opal is becoming more rare. It has ‘pinfire’ flash, little specks of colour in a host stone, and the greater the concentration the more brilliant the colour. Some Andamooka Matrix opals are treated with heat and sugar to darken the background so the pin-fire opal can be seen. Unique!

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!
