This boulder opal specimen has an organic freeform undulating surface. The highly polished chocolate brown ironstone has blue opal colours that flow into mauve and coffee coloured opal. The freeform shape invites you to touch. The blue and mauve veins of opal are visible on all sides of the specimen running through the natural patterning of the chocolate brown ironstone.
Boulder Opal is a beautiful and unique opal that has the brilliance of colour not found in any other gemstone. It is a unique form of opal because it is found as a mixture of precious opal and iron stone together. It can be found in matrix form where the opal and iron stone are naturally mixed.
The Boulder Opal specimen was mined in the Winton area and has been expertly hand shaped and polished by us to highlight the natural beauty of the opal.
This is an excellent showpiece for any gemmologist, collector or opal enthusiast .
The polished Boulder Opal specimen comes packaged in a gift box.
