What a stunner of an Australian Opal. This gem opal is bright and full of all colors of the rainbow. The opal comes from the Mintabie region of Australia and is white in base. No matter what angle you look at this opal, it boasts full colors over the whole face. The only knock on it is the natural sand spots on the sides. It would still look magnificent in a prong setting, but a bezel set will hide the sand spots. There were two sand spots on the sides that had a bit of a void, so I filled them with high grade jewelers epoxy. This was done to stabilize and prevent any issues down the road with this opal. The ct weight before I put the jewelers epoxy in the voids was 3.02 ct. It is now 3.12 ct.
This opal would easily fetch over $250, but due to the fact that it would serve best in a bezel with the sand spots, it is priced the way it is.
