Lightning Ridge is a town in north-western New South Wales, Australia, in Walgett Shire, near the southern border of Queensland. Famously known as the black opal capital of the world, this little town may be small but it is also mighty. The 'Lightning Ridge Black Opal' Raw Silk jacket is a classic in the Joe Bananas collection. The rich opal tones are masterfully recreated in the weave of this jacket, perfectly capturing the natural beauty of this unassuming gemstone from the Australian outback. It is a stunning piece which can be easily adapted for any and every occasion.
