These statement Boulder Opal earrings have gorgeous colors and patterns.
The opals have shimmery aqua tones with brighter aqua accents.
The shimmery bright aqua colors are naturally framed by the tan sandstone.
The opal colors are highlighted with natural splashes of contrasting black manganese running through the opal.
The opal colors are visible through to both sides of the earrings.
The earrings sparkle and shimmer as the opal catches the light.
This type of opal is known as natures art.
These earrings are 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.
The opals have a highly polished surface with heaps of that natural character that Boulder Opal is famous for.
The natural formation allows us to create gorgeous unique organic opal jewelry.
The earrings are set with high quality anti tarnish sterling silver as drops from a stud.
The earrings have been made from a natural split. We split one vein of opal to create a mirror image …a matching pair.
These opal earrings are 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.
Your opal earrings come packaged in a gift box.
