Andamooka Matrix Opal Cabochon Pendant Wire Wrapped Solid 14K Gold
Andamooka Matrix Opal Pendant Wire Wrapped Solid 14K Gold Round Wire
Beautiful vibrant Andamooka Opal, a precious opal exhibiting fine moving flashes in multi-colors of light within a dark charcoal gray host rock background; wears well with most colors; typically better with dark versus light colors; and earth tone versus bright colors, as the multi-color reflections are more distinct against a dark contrast, and bright colors tend to obscure them; very well suited to a purist view as oval shape, high dome surface contour, and color flash pattern are all consistent with standards. The moving color flash patterns also appeal to an artistic view.

Treatment: Most andamooka matrix opals are originally white but often sugar-acid treated to carbonize and darken the background stone creating greater contrast and more vibrant color reflection; they are also often pitted, so filled with polymer resin for a smoother, shinier, high polish surface.
