Very Fine Black Opal with Red Fire
Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia
This oval cabochon is suitably-sized to create a ring. Strong red flash, with orange, yellow, blue and green are visible in what would best be termed a "windmill pattern." Such stones, with a true black body color and vivid play-of-color present are increasingly difficult to obtain in today's market. A fine stone for the serious collector.
Weighing approximately 8.09 carats and measuring 15.5 x 12.0 x 5.5mm
