From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The opal was cut and polished by John Altmann to a weight of 203 carats (41 g). It displays a magnificent array of reds, blues, and greens and was set with diamonds into an 1 8CARAT (75%) PALLADIUM necklet
Andamooka opal adorned the hemline of the year 2001 "Opal Dress" worn by Olympian Tatiana Grigorieva; a breathtaking beauty valued at AUD500,000 and housed at the South Australian Museum.
The opal fields were discovered in 1930 by two drovers from Andamooka Station who saw flashes of brilliant colour on a hillside after a rare thunderstorm. Opal is still mined in close proximity to the town and extends into 24 fields, giving the area a fascinating moon-like appearance. Andamooka is the only town in Australia where none of the streets are named and the main thoroughfare is built in a creek bed.
