Boulder Opal SpecimenRegular price $245.00
This is one of my favorite Boulder Opals in the collection and sat on my desk for a while before I decided it needed a new home. I have now swapped it out with another one. The 'opal' portion of this stone is small but it is so vibrant and the whole area that shows color is deep, bright, neon purple flash. It is absolutely breathtaking.
Boulder Opals were first discovered in Quilpe, Australia in the late 1800's and to this day most Boulder Opal comes from Queensland. All of the Boulder Opal available in my shop is from the Broken Rive Mine in QLD. It is formed when the Opal flowed into seems in the Ironstone and that's why it looks likes rivers/oceans in the desert. They are often used to help boost creativity, awakening your awareness of self and actualizing that awareness.
