This solid Australian black opal shows wonderful blue play of color across the surface.
Lightning Ridge Australian black opals are the elite of the opal world. They are by far the most valuable and precious of any opals anywhere.
This opal has been polished to a fine sheen. The bottom edges have been lightly beveled to facilitate setting, as shown in the last photo. There is some sand on the bottom as can be seen in the last photo.
This precious gem measures 13 mm X 10 mm x 4 mm and weighs 2.60 carats. There are 25.5 millimeters in one inch.
