This 14.7ct crystal opal carving was mined at the famous 15 mile field, Coober Pedy, South Australia.
It is completely saturated with skin to skin gem colour, showing off its brilliance in every direction, and polished both front and back to show off its remarkably pure translucency. This means, that to a degree, the gem will take on the colour it is being worn in front of... so you will see this opal play differently in not only different lights, but with different backdrops.
In average light, the opal displays bright greens, blues and purples with a tint and speckling of red, but when awoken by full light conditions, it really comes alive with an array of reds, oranges and yellows while main ting its green blue undertones. A simply remarkable opal.
Set generously with 18ct yellow gold and 5 x 5pt diamonds, and paired with a delicate yet strong 18ct gold 45cm chain.
