Opals have to be one of our all time favourite stones. Just look at those colour flashes tucked inside the matrix stone! We love that this piece of opal has been left in the rock it was naturally formed in, it really gives you a feel for how these incredible gemstones are mined.


The piece of matrix and opal is set in a 9ct gold wire cage, marked '9ct' to the base.


The pendant measures approx 25mm tall (not including the jump ring) by approx 14mm wide by approx 12mm deep and the pendant weighs approx 3.95g.


Condition - The pendant is in good vintage condition with some light surface wear to the boulder opal and gold frame. The bail at the top is beginning to wear a little. There is some movement of the boulder opal in the gold cage setting but the gold wire is a little malleable and so can be moved to hold the stone better if it moves. Care will need to be taken to monitor the gold cage wires if worn often as they could move if caught or pulled. The jump ring is currently pushed closed. Please see photos.

*Please note the antique box and chain pictured are not included in the sale but the pendant will be shipped in a new presentation box and pouch.*
