This offering is sold.
Boulder opal is a spectacular and natural opal found in small pockets of ground in Australia. Zuni Pueblo carver Nelson Yatsattie's gracious Hummingbird reveals itself in a matrix rich portion of scrumptious Boulder opal, with subtle purple and green veining throughout. In nature, these determined little birds have wonderfully iridescent plumage. Turquoise inlaid eyes are lovely. About 2" tall, 5/8" wide and 1 1/2" deep.
