Description: This opal is oval shaped. The triplet preparation for this opal gives a pink tone to the base color. The precious opal is red and green with some blue flash of color. The color shows well both vertically and horizontally.

Setting aspects: The opal is has a 18 x 13 mm calibrated cap ready for setting and has a high polish, low dome. The back is flat with a 600 grit polish.

Opal Pink Triplet preparation: We dig our opals at the Spencer Opal Mine in Spencer, Idaho. We cob the rough opal out of the larger rocks, then cut the opal pockets from the matrix using a 10” or 6” saw. We take the opal and polish down to the precious opal using a flat lap. Once the color is reached, we epoxy the opal to a red backing, then cut the excess matrix from the opal. We again polish through the opal to the precious opal layer and epoxy a calibrated quartz cap onto the opal. Using our 4” saw we clean-up around the opal and finish to the shape using lapidary wheels. Some Idaho opal as naturally occurring pink or red base color, which is why we prepare pink triplets.

Future listings will include Australian Opal from Lightening Ridge, Australian Opal – Boulder Opal, Ethiopian Opal, Mexican opal or Fire Opal, and Ice Cream Opal.
