Andamooka Matrix 2.4ct Opal pendant, rainbow pinfire colour, sterling silver bail, small solid Australian Opal, unisex opal gift
Australian Andamooka Solid 2.4 ct Opal Sterling silver pendant
This is a small Andamooka matrix opal with some wonderful yellow, green and blue pinfire colour at different angles and a two tone background. It has been heat treated to provide a darker background to show the pinfire. The finished pendant is 20 mm long with a sterling silver leaf bail. It comes on a free silver plated chain in an organza bag and suitable for guys and gals, this is 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. There is not much material coming from this field these days and therefore this type of opal is becoming more rare. It has ‘pinfire’ flash, little specks of colour in a host stone, and the greater the concentration the more brilliant the colour.
