Double-sided Black Crystal Opal
Lightning Ridge, Australia
Rarely are opals beautiful on their reverse sideoften featuring common opal on the back otherwise known as "potch". However, this fine example, is equally beautiful when viewed from the front or back. A crystal opal, which is translucent when held to the light, this gem-quality stone displays a true black body color with broad flashes of yellow, orange, blue and green in a "paving stone" pattern on each side. Easily mounted as a pendant to display both sides this exceptional stone is an excellent choice for the collector of opals and fine gemstones.
Weighing approximately 10.53 carats and measuring 19.6 x 14.6 x 5.9 mm
