Gemstone: Opal - 14.46 Cts.
This highly aesthetic Opal features the extremely coveted harlequin
pattern with rare broad flashes of red and orange. This
sought-after combination makes this 14.46-carat Opal highly
regarded among collectors. The stone features a pear shape with a
medium dome, rounded girdle, and excellent polish. The
play-of-color is evident on all polished surfaces, and vibrant
flashes of red, blue, green, yellow, orange, purple, and pink
strike the viewer. The white body color and opaque nature of the
variety bring out this internal "fire." A few black inclusions are
visible on the back, but overall, this incredible gemstone is in
pristine condition. This Ethiopian Opal is simply unparalleled.
Measurements: 21.06 x 16.83 x 8.14 mm, 14.46 cts.
