Queensland Boulder Opals

Queensland Boulder Opals

Australian opals come in so many different shapes and colours, that's one of the reasons why we love working with them so much! Did you know that Australia is home to the Boulder Opal?

Most of the world's Boulder Opals are mined and produced in Queensland! This means we are able to locally and ethically source all the opals we use directly from local miners, ensuring the best quality gems.

These opals form withing ironstone boulders, hence the name "Boulder Opal". When the opal is formed, it is attached to the boulder or 'host rock' and the opal is often mined with the stone backing still attached to the stone. These opals vary in size from less than a few centimetres to more than 20cm! There are so many details that make the Australian Boulder Opal so unique!
