23.4 carat freeform Boulder Opal from the Lightening Ridge Mine in Australia measuring 30 mm in length by 10 mm wide. Like all opals we sell it has not be treated using any method. Quality bolder opals are completely natural and reflects the stunning beauty of the earth and, like all boulder opals, the back of the opal is solid stone.
The Boulder Opal is formed in the cracks and crevices of natural ironstone and sandstone over millions of years. All boulder opals are one of a kind. No two are alike. And, it is one of the few opals that cannot be created in a synthetic environment or lab. A true investment.
