The colors flash and flicker vividly with rotation of the opal and there is also play of color. This solid fairy boulder opal has been mined from the Queensland boulder opal fields and is found above the ironstone layer of the boulder opal.The body of the opal is sandstone which has been treated with inert chemicals (non toxic) which darkens the stone and helps show the natural gem colors that are there. The dark body tone is through the whole opal and not only on the surface. The opal has been stabilized which increases its strength upto 10 times.
