Australian Opal Ring in Sterling Silver
Beautiful, flashy Australian boulder opal set in sterling silver with a serrated sterling bezel and twisted sterling wire border. The band is three pieces of twisted sterling silver wire that I've oxidized and is 4mm wide. This unique stone measures approximately 1/2" long by 1/4" wide. In its setting, it measures about 5/8" by 3/8". The ring shown is a size 6.5. If you need a different size, I have a large collection of opals for you to choose a special one for your custom ring.
Koroit Opals are from Queensland, Australia. They are famous for their deep color, unique patterns and inclusions of stunning opalescence. Koroit opals are the second most valuable type of opal (following black opal). Koroit opals are easily distinguished by their layer of solid brown ironstone left on the back of the stone. Boulder opals are mined from large ironstone boulders found underground. Thin veins of colorful opal forms in cracks (in sandstone) from water carrying silica. When the water evaporates, sometimes an opal is formed.
