This is an enchanting Opal! The Opal itself is white/orange mixed color, but the flash is bright multi-color flash. It has a rolling Aroura Borealis pattern that is beautiful. The flash is abundant throughout the entire stone and changes every time it is moved. There is a large flash of red on the flat side that spreads throughout the background of the piece when you look across the barrel top. Getting a piece of rough this large to facet is difficult because most of the rough is smaller, and large pieces usually are bought up for making cabochons. The rectangle barrel top cut sharpens up the appearance of the color flash for an attractive look the cabochon gems just can’t produce. We have made several pieces of jewelry with these Opals, mostly pendants, and they always come out spectacular. This gem was faceted by Allyce Kosnar of Kosnar Gem Co, during July 2017. Enjoy!
