Boulder Opal is a variety of precious Opal that consists of concretions and fracture fillings in a dark siliceous ironstone matrix; they are mined from large ironstone boulders (as the name suggests) under the ground that have formed veins of colorful Opal in their fissures and cracks.
These rough pieces of Boulder Opal have a solid brown ironstone matrix, this matrix is very dark and enhances the small veins of Opal that can be found. Boulder Opal has a higher density than other varieties of Opal because of the added durability from the ironstone matrix, and so these pieces would be great for a polishing!
Opal is thought to stimulate originality and creativity, helping to discover your true self and work to your full potential. Opal has traditionally been associated with love, passion, and desire. It is also thought to bring luck.
