    Description

    Gemstone: Opal - 42.21 Cts.
    Ethiopia

    This incredible precious Opal lights up with intense play-of-color from all viewing directions. Every color of the visible spectrum is represented; even the rarer red and orange hues are highly evident. The 42.21-carat stunner features an elongated pear shape and an even polish all the way around. The specimen displays an opaque white body color and a tightknit broad flash pattern on the primary and reverse sides. The thick cabochon exhibits a high dome and rounded girdle. Due to the excellent cut, polish, and amount of flash, this is a rare offering. This knockout gem is in excellent overall condition and should not be overlooked.
    Measurements: 34.34 x 20.12 x 12.38 mm, 42.21 cts.
