Lightning Ridge Opal cabochon 3/17/07 01 - 27 x 11 x 3.3 mm
- 6.5 carats - Here is a nice sized beautiful gem cut from
world famous Lightning Ridge opal fields in Australia.
Lightning Ridge is historically the highest priced and most
desirable opal in the world. This is a solid opal cabochon I
cut in 2006. I've held onto it for 12 years. It has a bright
and lively, multi color pin fire in an unusual semi-black,
smokey, semi-crystal base that is best seen in real life.
The fire is best seen in motion and it's better than the
photos show. This video clip does a better job of showing
the fire, especially toward the ending - take a look to see
the cab in motion:
