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 beautifully carved frog with great presence and character. A person cannot help but admire the beauty shining through in this carving. Every part of this carving has visible Opal, and the contrast of the matrix rock simply adds to the intricacy and beauty. The quality of the visible opal in this piece is impressive. The Opal ranges from blue to yellow to white with some green flash on the base and displays beautifully.
The attention to detail in this carving is wonderful, even the frog's feet on the bottom of the carving have been patiently added to the finished piece. This is a feature ignored in many carvings.
The frog teaches a person to always look ahead. A frog cannot go backwards, but can speedily go any other direction. It teaches a person to look at life the same way, do not dwell on the past, simply look for openings ahead of you.
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.
