Description

The wife has turned her hand at opal carving to create this totally unique black opal showing stripes of blues, greens and purple with bands of the natural grey potch (mother opal) all carved from a single piece of solid opal. Mined in the famous Lightning Ridge opal mining area of Australia, this 4.40 carats 21.24mm X 17.28mm X 2.97mm gem would make a fantastic opal pendant. This totally natural N6 darkness, 1 out of 5 bright, untreated solid Australian opal is sure to put a smile on the face of its new owner. The wife when cutting this gem has left some of the opal clay it was found in still in the back, proving beyond a doubt this is the real genuine gem, and it has not been dyed or treated in any way.
