Exceptionally Vivid Picture Boulder Opal--"Coucher de soleil sur la mer"
Jundah, Queensland, Australia
Of slightly tapering form, this elegant elongated rectangular cabochon appears to depict the setting sun over the sea. Above the "horizon line" the play-of-color is a broadflash green with yellow and orange; below the line the "sea" abounds in hues of blue, violet, green flashes of orange and red. The reverse side is a rich chocholate-colored ironstone. The hues of this exceptionally rare collector's stone are as vivid as one could desire.
Weighing approximately 31.43 carats and measuring 33.80 x 12.20-14.84 x 6.15 mm
