Gemstone: Opal - 15.78 Cts.
This gorgeous Ethiopian Opal features a lovely golden body color.
The pear-shaped cabochon is opaque, allowing the intense
play-of-color to be the star of the world-class gemstone. The stone
features a medium dome, rounded girdle, and an excellent polish on
all surfaces. The powerful "fire" is visible throughout the entire
stone, including the sides. Every color is represented in this
broad flash pattern; intense red, yellow, and green flashes are
especially visible. Weighing 15.78 carats, this gem is an optimal
candidate to be set as a ring, a pendant, or a brooch. This is a
top-caliber Opal and is in pristine condition.
Measurements: 22.52 x 18.89 x 7.82 mm, 15.78 cts.
