These Boulder opal earrings have bright purple colors glowing from within the light tan sandstone.
The colors have that magical way of shimmering and glowing when moved.
These Opal earrings are 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 natural formation allows us to create gorgeous unique organic opal jewelry.
The opals have a highly polished surface.
The earrings have been made from a natural split. We split one vein of opal to create a mirror image …a matching pair.
The earrings set with anti tarnish sterling silver in a drop from a hook design.
These opal earrings are solid natural Boulder Opal.
The opal was mined in the Winton area and has been expertly hand shaped and polished by us to highlight the natural beauty of each 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 earrings arrive to you packaged in a gift box.
