    Hello everyone
    Just a little 9ct gold brooch to show you which features a very nice crown set, cabochon cut Boulder Opal.
    The brooch measures 6cm long and is marked 9ct. I would be fairly certain that it is Australian made........time frame? Not sure, at a guess, early 1900s.
    I bought this at an antiques fair about 2 years ago and I really love it!
    Hope the colours in the opal show through enough for you to see how beautiful it is and that you enjoy. Thanks, Judy.:-)

      Judy... it is beautiful!
      I just love opals, they're like pools of light.
      Your petite brooch is superb!

      I don't think boulder opals are appreciated enough but I love the subtlety of those colours poking through the matrix. So beautiful.

      Thank you Eileen for such a lovely comment, opals are quite magical aren't they! So happy you think it is beautiful :-)

      Thanks Karen, Must admit I prefer Boulder opals.......I like the other ones too, but the older boulder opals really are beautiful especially as you say with the colours poking through:-)
