I source my opals from local miners, cut and polish them 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.

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 ‘pin fire’ flash, little specks of colour in a host stone, and the greater the concentration the more brilliant the colour.
