Andamooka Opal aka Matrix Opal, found in the mining fields of Andamooka, Australia, is an old and not well known material. It is more porous than most opal and the porosity is evident on the face of the cut and polished stone. The Andamooka Matrix Opal is soaked in a sugar solution and then boiled in sulfuric acid to deposit carbon in the porous spaces which enhances its underlying dark color. Spectacular pin fire flashes of various colors are displayed in each stone.
Hand crafted Bolo Ties and Belt Buckles offer unique expressions in contemporary designs. Stand out from the crowd with an exceptional tie and/or buckle featuring spectacular hand cut stones and innovative metal work.
Master Lapidarist Ran Armstrong has spent decades honing his crafts in lapidary arts, jewelry design and metal sculpting. Starting with large pieces of rough material (rocks), Ran cuts slabs. He then begins the process of studying each slab to find the most interesting picture, pattern or color combinations before cutting the final cabochon for a jewelry piece.
Each piece is created one at a time and is one of a kind which will be Distinctively Yours.
