About Boulder Opal
Boulder Opal is the second most prized form of opal, after black opal. The name derives from the fact that boulder opal is found embedded in ironstone boulders. The opal usually forms as thin veins within these boulders, and most stones are cut to include some of the host ironstone matrix. Boulder opal is sometimes referred to as opal in matrix for this reason. Boulder opal is especially attractive because, like the black opal, it has a dark body tone which adds vibrancy to the play of color. Boulder opal also has a higher density because of the ironstone content, and can be more durable as well.
I have purchased from GemSelect before. I was impressed with the obvious care that was taken in the packaging and shipment of my gem. The gem itself was absolutely stunning...which is why I highly recommend GemSelect!
I am very happy with my purchase from GemSelect. The process was quick and easy. The price and selection of gems is astounding and I found exactly what I was looking for in as good if not better quality than other dealers were offering for the same gem but for a fraction of the cost. My girlfriend is going to love her engagement ring. Also, the amount of information on the exact details and specs of the gems was much more than other dealer and they had REAL photos of the ACTUAL gem. That was something I didn't find at any other site.
