It's a dark and stormy kind of day......but I've done my best to photograph today's Tuesday Treasure. After talking with Jo at Lilly Pilly about last weeks treasures, it happens that both of us have a very similar treasure, and decided to do a post together this week! Here's her gorgeous Tuesday Treasure.
Here's mine! A gorgeous opal and zircon ring. It was a gift from my parents after a trip to famous Lightning Ridge.My favourite stone is opal, it is the most heavenly of all the gem stones, in my opinion. You are able to locate every colour of the rainbow in a good piece, you can find opal fossils, and it's Australia's national gemstone. We mine different types here in Aus, black opal being worth the most per karat.But my beautiful little treasure isn't black opal. It's white opal, which is my favourite type! Thanks Mum and Dad, it truly is a treasure!
