I have to admit this stone reminds me of the Eye of Sauron just a little bit. It doesn't look like the movie representation, but there is something intense about it. Less LOTR-minded folks may see something of the ocean and the Earth's crust in it. It is certainly a stone that gets the imagination going!
The natural Australian boulder opal is approximately 22x14mm at the longest and widest points, it weighs 13.75 carats.

Returns & exchanges
I know how important it is to "meet" your jewelry in person, so I offer a no-questions asked return policy. However, please contact me within 3 calendar days after receipt to let me know what you will be returning (so I don't use the funds from the sale to buy more jewels ;-) ), and ship the item back within 5 business days. Please convo me for shipping instructions (I ask for tracking on all return items, some may also require insurance. I cannot issue refunds for items that are lost in the mail!).
I can reserve an item for a buyer with no obligations for up to a week.
If you really love something but need more time to buy it, I offer a layaway option. In general, all layaway items will be subject to a 20% non-refundable deposit, and regular payments over the course of several weeks (up to three months, depending on the value of the item). If you change your mind about buying the item, I will refund all the payments except the 20% nonrefundable down payment.
Please feel free to send me a message any time if you have questions!
