Solid pipe opal with green flash and quality handcrafted in 925 sterling silver ring with rhodium plated to prevent tarnishing. The opal is from our mine in the Quilpie district in western Queensland.
Pipe opal occurs when fragments of tree roots or any organic material are trapped in sediments on an opal level and in time some of resulting cavaties are replaced by potch or precious opal. The sandstone has been stabilised with a polymer resin to increase strength and durability and avoid chipping during setting process.
