Exceptional quality display pieces. All natural. Untreated, unheated and uncut.
Hand picked by the gemologists at the mine. Very exceptional pieces. Some have phantoms. Another is all blue. All are translucent and beautiful.
The biggest pieces in the dome have the very top quality color play, translucency and spectrums of colors to be found in all of Virgin Valley.
A quick guess appears to be about 15 pieces, small to medium. I'll update that info later.

This type of opal has a high water content. (8-10%) Because of that, they must stay wet (with water only) They are usually kept in glass domes. They'll stay stable for generations when kept wet. If left out of the water they will usually "craze" as it's called when opal cracks from being too dry.
The mine has a facility that grades and directly glass domes these pieces so they are kept stable directly after mining.
(GIS Virgin Vally opals for more info or convo me.)

It's a 50x70mm glass dome. The pieces are, of course, smaller than that. A few may need a bit more cleaning however they are all fantastic.
Top examples of V.V. opal. Photos can't capture the fantastic play of color. So much better in person.


Shipping includes insurance.

Thanks for your interest.
