This Australian Boulder Opal has two "wing shaped" splashes of blue opalescence divided by a wedge of brown matrix. The Blue Morpho Butterfly is one of the most beautiful butterflies on our planet. It's habitat is the tropical forests of South America, Central America and Mexico. Although the top side of the Morpho butterflies wings are an irridescent blue, the bottom side of the wings are a dull brown so that when at rest in the debris of the forest floor it will be camouflaged from it's predators. Catch this beautiful boulder opal before it morphs into a butterfly and flys away! This dramatic opal is 3/4" long and 3/4" across and weighs 19 carats.
This opal is available on its own or you may contact me to create a one a kind design using this stone.
