Australian Opal Cutters
20578473 Black Opal Loose 10.69ct
This Black Opal has the effect of swimming in the Australian ocean at dusk. The moody deep darkness of the sea is interrupted with bright green moments, reminiscent of coral or sparkling fish that flash and wink at the wearer with joyous charm.
"An exquisite Black Opal, the base of this Opal is as black as Black Opal gets. Not quite as dark as darkness you can touch, but close enough. So a very good quality Black Opal base with an amazing green rolling flash across the surface. It looks like standing on top of a cliff of a moonlit night, watching the waves rolling in below you. Flashing green."
