This opal looks like it has galaxies lying under its nebulous surface.
We have had this large Australian Opal hand set for us by our friends at Red Cloud Design. We chose to oxidise the sterling silver setting to bring out the intense colours of the opal.
Opal is the nation gemstone of Australia. We produce 97% of the world's supply, with much of it coming from Coober Pedy or Lightning Ridge. Opal is the birthstone for October and is considered to be a very lucky gemstone.
This piece measures 24mm x 20mm. We have presented it on a 80cm oxidised box link sterling silver fine curb chain.
