Black Crystal Opal Pendant
Lightning Ridge, New South Wales,
A thick seam of black crystal opal polished on both sides into a freeform carving, weighing approximately 24.5 carats and measuring 40.0 x 20.0 x 5.0mm, This is a completely unique and distinctive stone with its striated linear flashes of play-of-color in a range of full spectral hues and areas of predominantly red and orange flash within a distinct border of bluish-green. Accented with three circular-cut irradiated green diamonds bezel-set in white gold and completed by an 18K yellow gold setting. The setting is specifically designed to allow the equally beautiful play-of-fire on the reverse side to be visible and not concealed by the mounting as well as the thickness of the seam to be apparent.
