This broad flash dramatic red opal combined with some green and blue is one of a kind and comes from the Western Queensland Opal fields. Dramatic red like this is the rarest of any type of opal. Small ironstone inclusions in the face testify to its natural origins. From some angles the green is evident but the red flames seem to dominate the stone from all angles.

The price of Opal, unlike many gemstones is influenced by supply and demand, not by international cartels who agree on price increases. Hence, opal is destined to go up in value as the supply becomes more restricted which is happening at present. The color of these stones is completely natural, in contrast to diamonds [for example] which depends on man-made facets to reflect the spectrum colors.

Price includes international Fedex courier insured and delivered to your door or office.
