    Gemstone: Opal - 19.67 Cts.

    This Ethiopian Opal export is simply stunning and weighs a respectable 19.67 carats. The elongated oval cabochon features an opaque white body color with a medium dome and rounded girdle. The stone has been expertly cut and polished to accentuate the stone's internal "fire." The eye-catching play-of-color evident is quite beautiful and awe-inspiring. The gemstone exhibits intense, broad flashes in a tight arrangement as each patch displays multiple colors in a very small area making the impact quite astounding. The flashes are bright red, orange, pink, purple, blue, yellow, and green. The entire primary face comes to life, and subtle flashes are still visible on the reverse side. This precious Opal is in pristine condition and a top-caliber example of the variety.
    Measurements: 27.96 x 17.58 x 8.83 mm, 19.67 cts.
