The Milky Opal is one of the two white opals found in Coober Pedy, South Australia. It is unique in the sense the colouration is opaque with the colours only found on the surface. This Milky Opal weave is our Midseason weight which makes it ideal for cooler conditions. Like the Milky Opal itself, this exciting and unusual weave presents a boundless array of colour.
DRESS IT UP AND DOWN: Any combination of primary colours: reds, yellows and blues can be combined to make a formal but fun outfit with the Milky Opal. Teals and greens will make it more relaxed and a blank canvas of black beneath will make a spectacle of the jacket.
CURIOUS FACT: White opals can display all the colours of the spectrum, and they will rarely cost as much as their darker cousins for the simple reason – they are much more common.
