Item Description

Opal is one of the most diverse gems out there. It's one of the few stones that looks just as attractive when it's crystal clear as it does when the stones are opaque. Despite it's rather simplistic chemistry, Opals show a great range of color in many varieties. This beautiful Opal gem hosts highlights of greens and blues with slight reddish gold colors on the edge. When this stone is strongly lit, it shows great color and the stone is a doublet which means that it has a backing attached to help show off the play of color. It is an attractive Opal with beautiful multicolor display. Valued at $378.30 high retail.
