However, a brighter and prettier Opal material than this you couldn’t ask for. The body of the Opal is bluish color, but turns a bright orange when backlit. The back of the stone has a natural Magnetite layer causing a vibrancy to the colors seen. This black layer is completely natural and not a manufactured backing, which makes this piece extremely desirable. This stone is a fun freeform shape, which is common for Australian Opal cutters to keep yield. The color pattern is a Pinfire with flashes of blue, green, orange and red. This gem will make and outstanding piece of jewelry, either a ring or a pendant! This stone has no backing, cap or treatment of any kind. This is a natural and stunning piece of Opal. Enjoy!
