This is a small slice of hard Andamooka Rainbow Matrix opal. It is thin and would usually be set in a bezel, however I have wire wrapped it in fine Sterling silver wire and it looks wonderful. This stone has an overall stunning green colour with other rainbow colours as you move it. It has been treated with sugar and heat to darken the background - this doesn't affect the opal or fade. The finished pendant is 30 mm long. It comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag.

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.
