Australian Andamooka Opal 14k gold filled wire wrapped pendant

This is a lovely freeform piece piece of Andamooka Matrix opal. This stone has lovely pinfire green and blue colours that sparkle as you move it. As with all opal, it is best viewed in direct light. It has been heat treated with sugar to darken the background. I have wire wrapped it in 14k gold filled wire and the finished pendant is 25 mm long. It comes on a free gold 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 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.

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.
