This specimen is a beautiful Polished Australian Boulder Opal with purple and yellow silica formations in the cracks of the ironstone boulder; a definite must have for any collection. This is a polished and sealed opal, so no need to keep it in water or conditioned with oils/lotions. Weighs 6.6 oz. and measures 2.25 x 2 x 1.5 inches.
One of the more rare types of opal, Australian Boulder opals are easily distinguished by their layer of solid brown ironstone left on the back of the stone. Boulder opals, as the name suggests, are mined from large ironstone boulders under the ground. Thin veins of colorful opal forms in cracks and fissures.
Boulder Opal calms the inner soul by representing the interplay of emotional elements, as seen by its refracting colors. This gemstone, which yields one-of-a kind-pieces that are unlike any other, facilitates personal actualization and self-awareness. It is an excellent stone for progress, expansion, and development.
