Andamooka is one of the oldest known opal fields in Australia discovered in the 1930s and is considered one of Australia's most prominent opal fields.
Opals from Andamooka have been used in the Queens Jewellery and has generated some of the most attractive pieces or sets of opal such as "The Andamooka Matrix Opal", and is also referred to as "The Queens Opal". Andamooka Opal is often treated with sugar to turn it darker to improve the Opal play of color. Whilst still highly prized and magnificent it sells for less than an untreated stone would.
