So Blue! This is just incredible large opal with purple undertone to blue. The pattern is quite monochrome and somewhat reminds lapis. One side it shows more pinfire pattern.
*Please note that my camera is picking up more blue waves of light than is visible with human eye. This opals color is somewhere between blue and dark purple.
*This opal is cut and polished by Līga from Liga's Opals & Gems.
