What are Crystal Boulder Opals?
Crystal Boulder Opal, also known as P!pe Crystal Boulder Opal, is a unique type of opal that is based on sandstone instead of the more commonly known ironstone. Unlike ironstone, sandstone is a more fragile and brittle material, which results in a lighter-colored and crystal-like opal.

These opals are often discovered unintentionally while searching for Ironstone Boulder Opals. You can find these opals in sandstone and they are often located in pockets rather than inside large boulders that require smashing open with a sledgehammer.
