Australia has been known for generations as the foremost location for the world's supply of Opal. Some of the best Opal in the world comes from this diverse and beautiful country.
To get to Opal Country in Australia, you need to leave the world of beaches and modern conveniences behind and head for the real outback. A place where homes are dug, not built, and swimming pools are only for tourists. Finding Opal is not for the faint of heart, but it is where fortunes can be made, or lost!
This amazing work of art is carved from the matrix rock in which some Opal is found, called Boulder Opal. It is a fish swimming through seaweed; you can almost see the reflection of the water in the opal on the front of the piece. There is a significant amount of visible Opal in this piece, particularly across the front of the fish itself. The top fin has a beautiful blue hue to it, while the banding of the opal on the body gives life to the carving. The Opal ranges from blue to yellow to white and displays beautifully.
The attention to detail in this carving is wonderful, even the bottom of the carving is carved to give life to this amazing piece. This is a feature ignored in many carvings.
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.
