Type of Opal -Type of Opal -This is a lovely triangle Andamooka Rainbow Matrix Opal. This stone has a glorious multitude of rainbow pinprick colour with some stunning reds and blues that are stunning in direct light, this is a rare combination. It 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. As with all opals, best viewed in direct light. A very different and beautiful rare gemstone, totally unique and one of a kind!

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.

Material - 14k gold filled wire.

Size - The finished pendant measures 25 mm long x 10 mm wide.

Necklace - 45cm gold plated chain.

Packing - Your pendant comes in an organza bag and a padded bag for posting, sent securely packed and tracked.

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.
