This is a huge, vibrant, stunning Austrailian Boulder Opal from Queensland, more for the collectors market than jewelry, though if you would like to wear it it has been drilled through the thickest portion. It needs no gold or gems added for this to be a fantastic pendant though all large opals need to be worn with extreme care. This Opal has it all, Greens, Blues, Violet, Reds, and Yellows all appearing in solid vibrant bands. We have had a terrible time trying to get a good photo of this stone. The bands with the red and yellow didn't want to show up for the camera at all and the rest are subdued compared to what it is like in person.We finally got lucky and got a hint of the red and yellow bands to show up but even our best picture does not do the stone justice at all. There is lite crazing on the stone that is nearly invisible in normal light but becomes more defined in sunlight or bright lights. This stone is totally natural with no binders or darkeners or any other treatment.
We have taken the crazing into account in the price. The item "189.5 Ct Peacock Color Queensland Boulder Opal, Loose Australian Natural Stone" is in sale since Tuesday, August 6, 2019.
