Boulder Opals

We are experts in the niche of Australian opals, including boulder opals—characterized by veins or patches of bright colors. The presence of ironstone is the defining features in these opals.

Found only in certain places in the state of Queensland, Australia, each boulder opal is cut and polished to perfection to maximize it's own unique qualities. Just like black opals, boulder opals too have a darker body tone which comes from the presence of ironstone. This creates a stronger contrast of colors, magnifying the intensity of shades. Usually shaped in freeform, boulder opals often have an undulating surface and those with lower concentration of ironstone are considered purer, more valuable.

Don't worry if you don't fully understand the somewhat complex world of opals. We are here to help you make an educated choice. From the brightness to body tone and pattern, we share every detail you need to make a sensible purchase decision. Still, if you have any doubts or questions, please don't hesitate to Contact Us. If you are interested in one of these unique stones set into jewelry, we welcome your inquiry for a Custom Designed setting made to showcase the shape and special characteristics each Boulder Opal has.
