This beautiful opal heart pendant is handmade in the Sugarpuss London studio using a magnificent, 25 carat, natural Australian opal from the Mintabie opal fields. The opal has been carved into a large, chunky, heart and has a creamy base with sandstone matrix. The face of the gem is awash with bright reds, greens, blues and yellows.
We've had this opal for over 7 months now and first blogged about it in October.. we've been umming and ahhing over whether to put the opal on a silver or gold chain (and even whether to sell it) but have finally decided on silver. If, however, you would prefer the opal on a solid gold chain, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote and/or more details.
The Mintabie (or Mintubi) opal mine is now thought to be near depleted, so opal from this mine is getting rarer to find (this pendant was cut from old rough), meaning it is a great investment piece.
Opal heart size: 28mm x 21.5mm and 9.5mm thick.
