Australian Opal, Boulder Opal Solid Polished Loose Natural Gemstone 6194
Our National Gemstone is natures work of art and each piece is unique. From the Australian outback - Winton, Koroit, Yowah, Eromanga and Quilpie. Cut and polished, ready to Set "Listed at discounted prices due to high Australian dollar". Boulder opal is found in an area that was the edge of a mighty inland sea and where once there was lush vegetation and dinosaurs roamed. Over time the sea evaporated and left behind the opal, filling the voids in rocks over millions of years. When the rocks are extracted from the earth they show little of what lies inside and only when you break them open do they reveal their true beauty. Size in mm: 22mm x 7mm x 3.5mm (thick).
Been enlarged to show detail. Please refer to measurements for actual size. All our opals are sourced directly from the mines and we guarantee all our items to be exactly as described, genuine, natural and untreated.
