Description:These gems are some of the most popular Opals for color, gemminess and the ever popular "Contra Luz" effect. This "Oval Cabochon" cut gem has has a beautiful electric orange in transmitted light, but in reflected light, it shows the highly desirable and seldom seen COLOR FLASH or "Contra Luz" effect with a beautiful rainbow-like array of color ! Now the color flash is best seen in sunlight or with a strong flashlight against a black background, and this stone was photographed under a strong flashlight to show the color flash. When strongly lit, this stone shows very slight flashes of yellow, red, green and gold. BETTER IN PERSON! These flashes of color are only seen in about 1% of the Fire Opals that I have seen from Mexico like this ! It's a very attractive stone, and would make a great piece of jewelry, or would stand on its own as a beautiful gem.
