This is a free form triangle of Andamooka Rainbow Matrix opal. This stone has lovely pinfire green colours against a dark background that change shape as you move it. As with all opal, it is best viewed in direct light and my photos can't do justice to the sparkles. It has been heat treated with sugar to darken the background and this doesn't fade. I have wire wrapped it in 14k gold filled wire and the finished pendant is a very different and beautiful rare gemstone, totally unique. 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 now rare type of Australian opal. It has ‘pinfire’ flash, little specks of colour in a host stone, and the greater the concentration the more brilliant the colour.

Size - The finished pendant measures 35 mm long x 15 mm wide.

Necklace - 45cm Sterling silver plated chain.

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

My Opals
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.
