Very Fine Opalized Clamshell

Coober Pedy, South Australia
This is as fine an example of an opalized clam as we have seen on the market. Distinguished by its vivid play of color in bright orange, blue and green with flashes of yellow, this gem would create a stunning ring or pendant. An exceptional offering for the discerning collector of opalized fossils.
Weighing approximately 9.08 carats and measuring 21.0 x 15.0 x 5.0mm
