Australian Opal Ring
Beautiful, solid Australian Opal set in a fancy sterling silver bezel with a double half round sterling band. This gorgeous opal is not a doublet or triplet, but is a solid piece of opal from Queensland, Australia. The opal measures 14mm by 11mm and the band is 4mm wide. I have oxidized the space between the bezel and the round wire border to highlight the beautiful blues and purple in the stone.
Opal is Australia's national gemstone. It is formed when water travels along the earth and picks up silica from ironstone. This water and silica solution gets carried along and settles into cracks and crevices. As the water evaporates, it leaves behind a silica deposit. Opals are mined from ironstone boulders which occur underground and are reminders that much of Australia was once underwater or part of a tropical forest.
