This unique Opal pendant has a ribbon of gorgeous bright purple opal mixed through the natural tan sandstone.
This type of opal is known as Pipe Opal. The opal formed millions of years ago when organic matter (such as twigs and branches of trees) disintegrated leaving cavity’s that the liquid opal has filled. Sometimes pipe opal can be the most beautiful colours often quality crystal opal ever seen.
The host rock is sand stone. It has a highly polished surface and huge amounts of natural earthy character. This natural formation of the host rock and opal allows us to create unique organic opal jewellery.
The Pipe 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 colours and patterns naturally mixed with iron stone which makes it extremely durable.
The casual style pendant comes with a waxed cotton necklace with slip knots to adjust the length so the pendant can be worn in a longer style or shorter length. This style of pendant is very popular with men, ladies, teenagers ……just about everyone!
The opal pendant comes packaged in a gift box.
