This is a lovely free form Andamooka Rainbow Matrix opal.
It has been heat treated to provide a darker background for the colour and then polished. I kept it's odd shape because sometimes that is better!

It has some wonderful pinfire greens and is wrapped with Sterling silver wire and beads.
As with all opals, the colour is best in direct light. It's like a starry sky at night. A very different and beautiful gemstone, totally unique.

Size - The pendant is  30mm long x 15mm wide.

Necklace - 45cm Sterling silver plated snake chain.

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

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.
