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: $1300.00 shipped to USA - paypal
