The stone in this solid 14k gold and solid18K gold pendant is a beautiful natural, solid, (not a doublet or triplet) un-enhanced boulder opal mined in Australia then cut and polished in the USA. The boulder opal of brown matrix shows beautiful deposits of precious opal flashing yellow-green, green, teal, and blue in the play of color. This beautiful little piece of Australia is shaped as a free form oval and measures approximately 16.4 x 10.1 x 4.2 millimeters.
It is set into a bezel mounting made especially for it. The bail of the mounting is solid 14k yellow gold, the bezel is solid 18K gold, and the backing is open.
There is also a picture of the back. The entire pendant weighs approximately 10.39 carats and measures approximately 22.6 mm long. The bail would accommodate a chain about 2.7 mm in diameter. A note about opal photography.
I try to make the best and most realistic photos of opals that I can; however, opals are notoriously difficult to photograph as the play of color changes with lighting and with the stones orientation to the light source. Cameras and monitors also show different color variations and saturation of color. These facts make it difficult to accurately capture the beauty of an opal with the camera, still or video. That said, nothing works as well as holding the opal in your hand and looking at it in person, in room lighting and in sunlight.
