Matrix Opal is a treated Australian Opal. The gemstone occurs as a network of veins or infilling of vices between grains of the host rock (ferruginous sandstone or ironstone). The Andamooka Matrix Opal may be enhanced by soaking the specimens in a sugar solution and then boiling in acid to deposit carbon in the available pore spaces, resulting in a dark background to highlight the myriad of colours of the opal.
Drawing inspiration from this Australian gemstone, the ‘Matrix Opal’ Raw Silk Jacket is a spectral delight. Muted rainbow colours of silk are delicately woven in a modern herringbone weave, bringing dimension and depth to the jacket. Like lightning in a rainbow, this weave allows for the individual to shine through. Perfectly at ease for both formal and relaxed occasions, it is a standout addition to any wardrobe.
