This Boulder Opal pendant is made from Pipe Opal.
Pipe opal is formed by opal occurring in sandstone rather than ironstone boulders.
It formed millions of years ago when organic matter, such as twigs and leaves, disintegrated leaving cavity’s that the liquid opal filled.
This opal pendant has the tan sandstone impregnated with shimmery bright aqua colors ,with a touch of mauve opal in the top of the pendant.
The opal colors are highlighted by natural slashes of contrasting black manganese running through the pendant.
The opal colors are visible through to both sides of the pendant.
The pendant sparkles and shimmers as the opal catches the light.
The natural formation allows us to create gorgeous unique organic opal jewelry.
This opal has a highly polished surface with heaps of natural character.
The casual style pendant comes with a waxed cotton necklace with slip knots to adjust the length so the pendant can be worn in a longer style or shorter length.
This style of pendant is very popular with men, ladies, teenagers ……just about everyone!
The opal is a solid natural Boulder Opal.
The Boulder Opal was mined in the Winton area and has been expertly hand shaped and polished by us to highlight the natural beauty of the opal.
Boulder opal is one of the most versatile opals because it has a huge variety of colors and patterns naturally mixed with iron stone which makes it extremely durable.
Your opal pendant arrives to you packaged in a gift box.
