Australian Opal Pendant 14k gold fill wire wrapped Andamooka Matrix pinfire , perfect gift
Australian Opal Pendant Andamooka Matrix pinfire 14k gold fill wire wrapped
A lovely pendant made with a 20 x 12 mm freeform Andamooka Matrix opal. This stone has pinprick green, yellow and purple colour play against a light tan background. Very unusual, I have wire wrapped it in 14k gold filled round wire and it's very hard to catch the sparkle in photos. The finished pendant is 30 mm long. It comes on a free gold plated chain in an organza bag.
A very different and beautiful rare gemstone, totally unique!
Andamooka opal comes from a small outback town in South Australia. The work involved in mining this opal, the small field it comes from and the gorgeous results mean that it is a unique and more rare type of Australian opal. It has ‘pinfire’ flash, little specks of colour in a host stone, and the greater the concentration the more brilliant the colour.
