It looks like a Koala snuggling into the red fire opal. It is actually a natural gold nugget from the Palmer River Gold mining region of Northern Queensland, that is a natural shape, but bears a similarity to a Koala. The red opal is mined from near Jundah in the central part of Queensland and has a fiery red display and also flashes green and orange. The opal sits beautifully in the nugget with the complimentary hues of the nugget showing off the opal. Mined by my mates and made by me, truly Australian in a classy way.
