This is a beautiful hand-polished Koroit Queensland Boulder Opal talisman pendant- Ultra thick and double-sided! It has been crafted using an artistic cut and is an opal collector's dream! It is completely natural and one-of-a-kind. It has been handcrafted by us here at Platypus Dreaming in the beautiful rainforests of Kuranda, QLD Australia, Ngunbay Djapukai country. It has plenty of different colours including fire red. All opals are hand-polished by us, in our unique artistic style. Features a 1000 pure silver tribal bead that has been hand-cut and chiseled using traditional methods.
Koroit Opal comes from a particular area in Queensland. They are famous for their deep strong ironstone with stunning patterns and inclusions. It is a type of boulder opal, and is found as part of a host rock, called Boulder ironstone. The opal is distributed throughout the rock. This is what makes Kaya’s job of cutting the opal such a fine art—the opal is “slivered” throughout the stone and ten seconds too long at the wheel can destroy the colour completely! The finished result is boulder ironstone with the precious opal inclusions cut as one piece. It gives an dazzling appearance similar to what you see when you look at the night sky, except that the ‘stars’ in this case are flecks of glorious and intense opal colour.
Opal is a stone of dreams. It inspires love and hope, luck and happiness. Opal acts as a prism within the aura bringing a full spectrum of light energy to the system to soothe and clear the emotional body. It is a stone that boosts the will to live and the joy of one’s earthy existence. It enkindles optimism and creativity. It can inspire love and deep passion. In the ancient world, opal was considered to be the most bewitching and mysterious of gems, providing the wearer with great luck as it possesses all the virtues of the gemstones whose colours reside within. Opal encapsulates the energy of the Australian outback. Each stone is an absolutely unique gift from the Earth.
