Limited Edition: Red Opal



Rich Red Opal is sourced from natural Opalite, a stone composed of layers and layers of tiny silicon dioxide spheres.  This Opalite represents the beginning phase of an Opal gemstone’s natural formation before the clear and iridescent qualities of the gem have been established.

Opal is created from a relationship between silicon dioxide and water.  Water runs down earth and seeps into the crevasses of rock, which then eventually evaporates and causes the silica to dry out and harden into Opal.

This unique pigment lays down thick and textured, adding beautiful warm dimension.

Handmade in our shop using the highest quality earth pigment and natural watercolor binding medium made from gum arabic (sap from acacia trees,) honey, glycerine and distilled water.
