Gem: Opal Weight: 1.11 cts. Size: 8.42 x 5.45 mm. Color: White/Orange with Color Flash Clarity: VVS Cut: Parallelogram Locality: Ethiopia Treatment: None
This is an enchanting Opal! The Opal itself is white/orange mixed color, but the flash is bright multi-color flash. It has a harlequin pattern to the flash that is beautiful. The flash is abundant throughout the entire stone and changes every time it is moved. The Parallelogram shape 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. Enjoy!
