Matching Pair of Boulder Opals

A matched pair of Australian boulder opals.

Boulder Opal  "Split"

Gemologist's Notes:
A matched pair of boulder opals is known as a  "split".  This striking pair was created by literally splitting and then polishing an opal crystal found in Australia.  The strong colors and beautiful striped pattern of these gems are exceptional.


Weight: these two boulder opals weigh  8.87 carats in total

Measurements: 12 mm by 11 mm

Cut Style: polished rectangle

Color: blue and green shades with flashes of red
strong saturation

Cost: This pair of boulder opals has sold.

Designer Notes:
This striking pair of opals are perfectly suited for either earrings or cufflinks.  For an elegant pair of earrings,  we suggest a simple 18kt yellow gold bezel around the edge of the opals perhaps accented with a small round diamond at each corner.  For distinctive cufflinks,  a gold or platinum shadow-box bezel with a satin finish would be a wonderful way to showcase these glittering gems!
