Boulder Opal

Boulder Opal jewellery

Shop Australian boulder opal jewellery from LotusMoon

Boulder opal is an exquisite gem, having a unique brilliance of colour found in no other precious stone. Many things about it are attractively different, especially the strong natural back and stability. This magnificent gem is found only in the vast arid regions of western Queensland. It is a beautiful child of the desert and to those who would seek her hiding place she says, “come and find me if you can. ” When found, her plea is to be handled with the tenderness and love she deserves, for she is not a child of the crude and tasteless, but a symbol of purity and hope, stirring the hearts and passions of all with her twinkling eyes and tantalising beauty.'

Opal love to be worn on the skin

Due to the differing percentage of water, Opals may easily become brittle. They always contain water – usually between 2 and 6 per cent, but sometimes even more. Thus if stored too dry or exposed to heat over a longer period of time, Opals will show fissures and the play of colour will become paler. Therefore, Opal jewellery should be worn as often as possible, for then the gemstone will receive the needed humidity from the air and from the skin of its wearer.

Opal and Emotions

The fantastic colour play of Opal reflects changing emotions and moods of people. Fire and water, the sparkling images of Boulder Opal, the vivid light flashes of Black Opal or the soft shine of Milk Opal – striking contrasts characterise the colourful world of this fascinating gemstone. Maybe this is the reason why it depends on our daily mood which Opal we prefer. Opals are like human emotions: you always experience them different and anew. See more here on opal meaning.
