Beautiful high grade light opal gem mined at Lightning Ridge, NSW.
This one was very difficult to photograph, and still the photo does this opal no justice... it has great full-spectrum colour on a semi-translucent body tone. Mostly light red & burnt orange broadflash colour play firing off at most directions.
Opal measures approx. 9.5 x 6.5 x 4mm and has a nice medium dome.
