This Boulder opal specimen has bright opal colors glowing from within the light tan sandstone.
The rich violet and bright aqua opal colors change and glow.
The colors have that magical way of shimmering and glowing when moved.
This specimen made from Organic Pipe Opal.
Pipe opal is formed by tubes of 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 specimen has a highly polished surface with heaps of that natural character that Boulder Opal is known for.
The specimen has a rustic organic look and feel, which invites you to touch.
Boulder Opal is a beautiful and unique opal that has a huge variety of color not found in any other gemstone.
It is a unique form of opal because it is found as a mixture of precious opal and sandstone together.
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.
This is an excellent showpiece for any gemmologist, collector or opal enthusiast.
The polished Boulder Opal specimen comes packaged in a gift box.
