Rainbow Australian Opal Andamooka Matrix 14k gold fill wire wrapped pendant

This is beautiful Andamooka Matrix opal that sparkles with the colours of the rainbow.
It measures 15mm x 10mm and I have wire wrapped it in 14k gold filled round and twisted wire, the finished pendant is 27 mm long. It comes on a free gold plated chain in an organza bag.
A very different and beautiful rare gemstone, totally unique and getting more rare by the day!  

Andamooka opal comes from a small outback town in South Australia. The work involved in mining this opal, the small field it comes from and the gorgeous results mean that it is a unique and more rare type of Australian opal. There is not much material coming from this field these days and therefore this type of opal is becoming more rare. It has ‘pinfire’ flash, little specks of colour in a host stone, and the greater the concentration the more brilliant the colour.
