    This was a find for me a long time ago...I fell in love with the Opal and could not believe the size of it! The stone is polished but in a raw state and is HUGE as you can see it has blues, greens and purples. The weigh of it is 45.7 grams of solid Opal. and the size is 2.50 inches x 1.30 I hope you enjoy!

      Winton or Quilpie?

      vetraio50, I have no idea...where do you think this is from? I am a mere collector of colours..:))))
    8. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      It will have to be either of those two.
      The sites are out in the middle nowhere!
      Check out "boulder opal in the rough" on google and you'll get more info..
      I have no real knowledge that will help you.
      Mind you there others who might know here on CW.

      My mother told me that it was bad luck to buy opals for myself. So a few years ago when I went to AU I went to the opal mines and got a big fire opal ring for my mother. She passed away a few years later and now it is mine - but I did not buy it for me!! I love opals but have always been afraid to buy them for me - my Mom was very big on signs and superstitions.....what do you think? BTW I love your opal rock!
    10. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago
      antiquarius123, I understand that was a superstition....but the only reason that was said was to ward off buyers of other gemstones other than Diamonds. The Diamonds sellers put that out there so there sales would not be hit. I Google that tale and that is what I came up with. Opals are good luck and the wearer is blessed with happiness with having a treasure of colours to look at on ones self!!!!
      BTW the superstition is not true what so ever! It was passed around by the Diamond Sellers of Old!!!!! :0

      Great news! Thanks for the info Moonstonelover!
    12. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago
      antiquarius123, I have to say....since I loved the Opal so much!!! I had to do research an make sure I was not bringing bad energy back to the house! So did a lot of it and came up with old wives tales that were from over a 100 years ago! Then found the cause of the tale!!! Must have been DeBeers who said that LMAO!!!!
    13. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago
      officialfuel, thank you for the loving :)))
    14. vintagejewel vintagejewel, 6 years ago
      Moonstone you are so right about opals not being bad luck i have read the same and also i have heard indeed debeers did participate with that ridiculous rumor because they.wanted diamond sales not to fall. Your opal is amazing
    15. BHock45 BHock45, 6 years ago

      I love this! I've purchased a few similar at the Quartzsite, AZ event about 4 yrs ago and was told they are Australian. Mine are smaller, lightly polished and top hole drill. Not near as blue as your gorgoues specimen! How lovely! I would put it on my desk too. I made mine into pendants w/woven bead bales for my sister and me...we're both October babies.
    20. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago
      valentino97, WOW thank you for loving this piece!!! I am only learning as I go! My youngest daughter is Oct. 12th and I have been collection for her.....she will love the Opals when she gets older. XOXOXOXO
    21. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago

    22. Moonstonelover21 Moonstonelover21, 6 years ago
      BHock45, all my pieces are from friends and contacts...not the jewelry store. I always show up in different pieces and love to surprise them with stuff. They are neat people and they have there contacts like I do mine .....I just sell for them.
