This genuine Australian opal we mined on the New Olympic opal field of Coober Pedy Australia, has been inlaid in solid sterling silver with a Queensland opal boulder ironstone backing (inlaid doublets) here at Star Mountain Gems Australia.
Electric green orange and blue sparkles flash as these classically symmetrical beauties twinkle from the lobe.
This opal is valued at $275 per carat making a natural opal earring pair like this hard to find for less than around $915.00 retail.
After 30 years in the opal business, we firmly believe opal can be the most beautiful gem on Earth, and we love the colourful characters and lifestyle of the outback opal fields. Here at Star Mountain Gems we are privileged to do our best to acquaint the world with the colour, light and beauty that quality Australian opal jewellery has to offer.
