- Over 50 carats of Australian fairy opal
- Treated matrix opal
- Confetti fire
- Natural amazonite
This Australian fairy opal and amazonite bracelet is a one off design handmade from over 50 carats of Australian fairy opal. The opal has a dark chocolate-black matrix and a delicious sprinkling of blue and green confetti fire. Natural blue-green amazonite accents the opal and the bracelet is finished with sterling silver freeform beads and a hammered toggle clasp.
Fairy opal is a type of treated matrix opal. The treatment consists of giving the opal a hot sugar bath, which turns the original sandy brown matrix to a deep black/brown. This is often felt to be more attractive and helps the colours pop out more. It is a lovely kind of opal with colours scattered in pin prick or confetti pattern all over the stone (in fact, it is sometimes known as confetti opal).
Rest assured, you will get the exact bracelet shown.
