Aurora Australis was found in 1938 in Lightning Ridge NSW and is still the world’s most valuable Black Opal! The stone itself was best regarded for its oval cut, perfect polish and harlequin pattern of a dominant green over peripheral primary colours against sheer black, representing the Aurora Australis over our beloved stone.
This distinctive Joe Bananas classic Opal thatch weave came off the loom in early February 2021. True to form, the green is a tertiary effect visible only as the true opal's primary colours merge. Its weight is perfect for dressing up in cooler weather, emphasising dark-on-dark tones. Dark chinos, trousers or dark denim jeans with a green or primary colour layer up top make it an outfit.
