Boulder opal is comprised of opal material found in small deposits in ironstone. Mining this unique stone requires a sharp eye to seek out the ribbons of rainbow in the desert rock formations. Boulder opal is found primarily in the desert outback of Queensland, Australia, in cracks, crevices and cavities. Silica from dissolved sand trickled down cracks and crevices in ironstone boulders and the silica precipitated out of this solution to form these radiant colors. Generally, the opal is found within boulders which need to be broken open. These are found in clay layers just above the ironstone, and sometimes tons of rock must be hand-processed to find a few precious stones.

The stonecutter has to be particularly skilled to showcase the opal material, and there will always be ripples of ironstone featured in each unique piece. (This is a natural feature and although it might sometimes look like a doublet from the side, it is far from it.)

The nice thing about the ironstone base is that it lends strength to the stone itself.

Each piece is unique, and the stones we're featuring are all ethically and environmentally conscious mined and cut right in Queensland.14
