A pipe opal is a precious Australian opal having formed in roundish or tubular holes in the mother rock, usually sandstone, but can be also found in boulder. Most of pipe opal found is crystal opal with bright colours. It is found exclusively in Queensland, Australia.

The term “crystal opal” refers to any kind of opal which has a transparent, translucent, or semi-translucent body. If light is able to pass through the stone, or you can see through an opal, then you are probably looking at a crystal opal. Crystal opals can display any colour of the spectrum in a beautiful play of color. The translucence of a crystal opal often gives it a greater clarity and vibrancy of colour than opaque stones. 

A Note About My Jewelry


I create powerful, unique, and sacred adornment crafted from Earth's finest gifts. All of my jewelry is hand-made and hand-finished, from natural and often recycled or repurposed materials. I try to use every bit of metal on my bench and not let anything go to waste. In this way, all my pieces are somehow related - melted, remelted, cut, recut, weaving together so many stories being told through the jewelry. No two items are exactly alike and my pieces will have natural imperfections - I believe it is these slight imperfections that give hand fabricated items their soulful character and appeal.
