These koroit opal stones have had a natural crack along the opal face. The stone is generally cut down and then split in two using the natural fissure. From then our experts have cut into shape and polished the pairs so they are ready to be used in creations requiring a matching pair like earrings or bracelets.
Pairs are a lot rarer than single stones and result in a higher price value compared to single stones.
Koroit Opals, are part of the Boulder Opal family which are characterised by solid brown ironstone matrix or layers interlaced with the opal and are the second most valuable opals in the world after Black Opals. Koroit Opals take their name from the Koroit mining area near Yowah in South West Queensland and are very thought after due to their unique pattern.
