When looking at this opal in different lighting scenarios, the play of colors which dance around inside of the opal will change. So if you view this in the mid-day sunlight, you’ll see a different color effect when viewing it at dusk and dawn and under moonlight and indoor lights. This is because the different light wavelengths in each viewing experience react differently to the structure of minerals within the opal.

In our home we often describe opals of this high quality, as having a firework display of colors.

Even in dark lighting this opal does not fail to stun, where it brings out qualities resembling those of a moonstone.

As with all natural gemstones, those of highest quality are extraordinarily rare and therefore command a high value as the earth has only produced a limited supply. It is expected that the mines for these will eventually deplete, likely within our lifetime. Based on historic gemstone prices, when the mine is empty it is expected for the price of these unique gems to skyrocket. Its high value will therefore echo through the ages as an investment or heirloom piece.

I have over two decades of handling gemstones, I have as a result an amazing network of gemstone suppliers and I only trade in what I term as a fair trade gemstones where there is complete traceability and fairness.
With the opals which I trade in, their entire journey can be traced from the mine which it came from, to my partnered gemstone cutter and polisher, until eventually it found itself embedded in this exquisite pendant and finally in your hands.

For the opal used in this piece, it truly resembles the color play and dance within the Aurora Borealis. We therefore designed this pendant specifically for an exceptional opal with this color play.

The housing is a collaborative piece between my wife and I, which we spent many months designing to ensure that it is just perfect.
When designing it, we kept the aurora borealis theme in mind, and therefore chose to surround this precious opal with 3 stars and a larger northern star above it. Each of the 4 stars is decorated with a glamorous Moissanite Diamond in the center, which are all D grade and of flawless (IF) clarity. The total diamond weight in this piece is 0.25 Carat.

The Opal itself is a cabochon dome cut and flawless (IF) clarity. The opal measures 10 x 10mm making it a perfect circle, which comes at a high cost due to having to sacrifice a large amount of high quality opal to allow it to fit into its final solid gold housing.
Of all the Opal mined in the world, this opal is in the top 0.01% in terms of quality. It took the earth over 30 million years to create this opal.

This opal comes from my private collection, and with the history of this piece and its incredible beauty, it is very difficult for me to part with. But funds are needed to keep the wildlife sanctuary and our family going.


***** About Us, our Wildlife Sanctuary and the Wildlife we Protect *****

In our wildlife sanctuary in County Clare in Ireland, we are working on recovering ecosystems which were damaged from intensive farming and resorting native forestry.
Being 10 kilometers from the coast, but in a mountainous area, adjacent to a lake, our forestry and heather fields provide a unique and essential habitat and breeding grounds for wildlife, both native and migratory.

We’re working throughout the year on different projects, from clearing grounds from invasive species to sowing native Irish wildflowers and rare Irish plants to help them from going extinct. This work is also essential to combating the declining numbers of bees and butterflies and other insects. We also actively encourage wildlife into our sanctuary by providing food and shelter.
Over time, we have noticed a great improvement for the wildlife in our wildlife sanctuary, it has proven to be an essential backbone for a wide variety of rare and endangered animals and plants.
