A freeform round 18 mm piece of Andamooka Rainbow Matrix opal weighing 8.65 ct. This stone has a multitude of rainbow pinprick with some stunning reds on the sides, gorgeous. As with all opal, it is best viewed in direct light. This stone has been treated with sugar and heat to darken the host stone and make the fire of the opal more visible, and then hand polished. I have wire wrapped it in Sterling silver wire with a weave bail and the finished pendant is 35 mm long. It comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag or gift box. 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 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!
