These Boulder opal earrings have a ribbon of bright opal colors glowing from within the light tan sandstone.
The colors change and sparkle…..from bright green to gold, red and blue.
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 that light reflects the light showing the opal at its finest.
They have heaps of that natural character that Boulder Opal is famous for.
The earrings are set with high quality anti tarnish sterling silver as drop from a hook earrings.
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.
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 come packaged in a gift box.
