Type of Opal -This is a lovely and unusual Andamooka Matrix opal. This stone has an overall yellowish/green colour with pinprick green and red that shows well in direct light. It has been treated with sugar and heat to darken the background as this type of opal is - this doesn't affect the opal or fade. I have wire wrapped it in Sterling silver wire in a unique design that follows the shape of the gemstone. The finished pendant is a large 38 mm long. The essence of Australia, a wonderful gift.

Material - Sterling silver wire.

Size - The finished pendant measures 38 mm long x 18 mm wide.

Necklace - 45cm Sterling plated snake 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 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.

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.
