Opal found in Quilpie, QLD (a little area in southwest Queensland) Australia.
Epic 9.4ct boulder opal set in heavily textured and sculpted sterling silver ring.
The opal is not super bright, but has great colour and pattern zoning and very cool sparkling play of colour.
The ancient Greeks called opals as “Opallios” which means “to see a change of color” and were believed to be formed from the happy tears of Zeus when he defeated the Titans.
Bought from Earthfire Australia
