Item Description

Black Opals are arguably the most distinct and popular Opal variation in the world. The intense multi-colored gems are highly prized for the fact that they are about as vivid as any gem gets in terms of a rainbow-like array for hues. Australia is obviously the prolific producer of Opals in the world, especially the famous locality of Lightning Ridge, where some of the finest Black Opals are found. This "Freeform Cabochon" cut stone features beautiful reflections of electric green, gold, yellow and red which are sitting against a black background. The vibrant color of the Opal against the background makes for a lovely gem, which would do well in a pendant or loose as a great addition to your gem collection. This stone is a SOLID Opal, and not a doublet or a triplet, which makes it more valuable and worthwhile for a collector.
