Property of a Mid-west Collector
Suite of Five Exceptional Black Crystal Opals
Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia
Carved from the same rough this suite of 5 oval and free-form double-sided, double-domed cabochons represents an outstanding opportunity for the collector or jewelry designer: it would be difficult to otherwise match stones of similar appearance to create a statement piece. These particular stones are stunning for their red ribbon pattern play-of-color with spectral flashes within a crystal body that appears red in transmitted light. The weights of the stones are as follows: the smallest oval, 20.09 cts; the larger oval, 23.90 cts; another oval, 27.60 carats; a free-form cabochon, 30.66 carats; and a larger free-form weighing 50.63 carats. (5)
The total aggregate carats weight of the five stones: 152.88 carats
