Yowah Natural Opal Sterling Silver Pendant
Our Yowah Nut Opals come from Brandy Gulley mine, which is one of the few mines left operating in Yowah, thus this material is becoming very rare. Our friend Avon has a lease on this land but when the material is gone, it's gone! Swirls of opal with great fire or colour and swirls of potch opal banding are intertwined with Hematite (dark brown), Iron Ore (Burgundy) and Ironstone (Brown, or Brandy, in colour - hence the mine name!). These days seeing as there is not much material to be found, the old mining workings are being dug up using an excavator to find what material was left or not noticed by days-gone-by miners.
