Boulder Opal Cabochons
Opal is a truly classic gemstone, and makes gorgeous jewellery.
A solid Opal cabochon is typically seen as more of an investment than a doublet or triplet cabochon, but honestly, it all depends on the size and grade.
These are all Boulder Opal, as in a vein of Opal running through a matrix stone. They come from Australia, usually Queensland. These would be considered lower end stones, as Opals go - hence the affordable pricing. Our stock of these items is very limited - they are sold singly and we may not be able to source any more.
These pieces are perfect for rings and pendants. It is hard to match them for earrings.
The pictures you see here are exactly what you will receive - each cabochon is one of a kind.
There are two for sale currently, both freeforms:
- 13.5 x 9.84MM at 5.5 carats, with a reasonable amount of green flash.
- 15.25 x 10.3MM at 9.5 carats, which has one nice stripe of blue flash but not much else
Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
