There are a few different types of matrix opal found in Andamooka, and this Rainbow matrix is the most porous of them all. It is sometimes called "Concrete" due to the conglomerate embedded within the quartzite matrix and the general resemblance to building concrete in its untreated state. The treatment process darkens the quartzite base so the Opal can be seen more clearly, and the Resin creates an even finished surface.
Item Type: SOLID NATURAL ANDAMOOKA Rainbow MATRIX OPAL
Origin: ANDAMOOKA Australia
Number of pieces: 1
Treated/Untreated: TREATED-CARBONISED - AND RESIN SEALED
Welcome to 53Frogs, where we run hundreds of no reserve auctions every week! But with all of those auctions spread out across so many different categories on Opal Auctions, it can be a bit overwhelming to find them all. That's why we've created a handy link at the end of our videos to help you easily access all of our no reserve auctions in one place.
And don't forget - if you're buying multiple items from our shop, we offer automatic combined shipping to help save you some extra cash. Just make sure to pay for all of your items at the same time to take advantage of this offer.
Now, a quick word about our return policy: if you're not completely satisfied with your opal when it arrives, you're welcome to return it for a full refund. Just keep in mind that once you alter or cut the rough opal in any way, it becomes yours and we cannot offer an exchange. So be sure to think carefully before you start cutting! And if you do decide to alter your opal, please remember that by doing so you are accepting ownership and cannot leave negative or neutral feedback.
Before you make your purchase, there are a few things you should know:
Payment is required within 48 hours of the auction end. We accept PayPal and credit card payments through PayPal.
We ship all items within 48 hours of payment, unless it's a holiday, in which case we'll ship on the next working day.
Standard shipping typically takes 5-21 working days to arrive. Please note that the buyer is responsible for any customs/import duties or taxes levied in their country.
Our guarantee: We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase from 53Frogs. If for any reason you're not happy, you can select a no-hassle return as long as the material is in its original condition. Just send it back (unaltered) within seven days of receiving it, and we'll process a full refund for your purchase minus the shipping cost as soon as we confirm that the items are in their original condition.
