NATURAL POLISHED OPAL FROM WINTON QLD AUSTRALIA
The opal occurs as a filling or lining between the concentric layers or in radial or random cracks in the ironstone, or as a kernel in smaller concretions or nuts.
The Winton opal field is known for the very distinctive type of boulder opal that is found in its mines.
Rich in history, Winton was originally known as Pelican Waterhole and was first settled in 1875.
The town is best known as the place that Banjo Paterson wrote Waltzing Matilda in 1895, whilst at Dagworth Station outside Winton.
Each opal is individually cut and polished by hand with time and care taken to get the best possible finish in the OPAL.
Nice stone, accurately depicted, except it was unclear whether there was a flat back. Flat backs, please? Good communication, prompt service. Thanks.
The Opal Sheriff program allows our members to request an audit on any auction, which is completed by an independent Gemologist who assesses the accuracy of the item description and pictures.
