Boulder Opal is a type of precious opal that is found in the state of Queensland, Australia. It is formed when silica gel seeps into cracks and fissures in ironstone boulders, and solidifies over time to create thin veins or patches of colorful opal. The unique ironstone matrix in which Boulder Opal is found gives it a distinctive appearance and provides a natural backing to the opal, making it more durable than other types of opal. The first recorded discovery of Boulder Opal was in the 1860s, but it wasn't until the early 20th century that it began to be recognized as a distinct type of opal. Today, Boulder Opal is highly sought after by collectors and jewelry makers for its unique beauty and durability.
