Price: $ 1250.00
Lightning ridge is the only place in the world that black opal is found and once you have the pleasure of owning a piece it becomes very addictive as this gemstome has flashes of multiple colours that sets the gemstone on fire. Black opal can be found on a host rock which is called potch which ranges in colour from light grey to deep black, then you find the colour bar on top of the potch and these colour can range to all the colour of the rainbow. Black opal is known as one of the most rare gemstone in the world and even many hundreds times rarer than diamonds.
This 10.80 carat opal is rare just for its size and cleaness, you just can't find many this size at all.This opal that is listed here is from Lightning Ridge and is sitting on a light grey potch and has strong red , green, blues and purple colour flashes. The size of this stone is 26.5 mm x 19 mm x 4 mm and weighs in at 10.80 carats which is a monster of an opal.. This stone has been cut to the natural shape of the stone and still has a dome for setting and has a nice polish on the surface but has one speck of sand which i did not want to cut out and lose a good proportion of the stone so I left it but is hard to see. This stone is only one sided with potch on the backside. Only have one for offer in this listing thanks, just a really nice Monster opal with lots of fire and flashes of colour!!
