Item Description

You will find many varieties of Opal on the market, and some of the most well known Fire Opals in the world are those from Australia. These top notch, classic stones are among some of the biggest, brightest and most intense color Opals from any world locality. This "Oval Cabochon" gem has good internal gemminess with a light golden hue, but the most impressive aspect of the stone is the fact that it shows the highly desirable and seldom seen COLOR FLASH that is seen when strong light is transmitted through the stone. Now the color flash is best seen in sunlight or with a strong flashlight against a black background. When strongly lit, the stone shows flashes of mostly green and blue. It's a very attractive stone, and would make a great piece of jewelry, or would stand on its own as a beautiful gem.
