This is one of kind opal with purple play of color. A lots is happening in the stone - there are curious inclusions, and body tone goes from light translucent to dark. I cut this beauty in a round shape, I think its appropriate for any type of jewelry and might be also wire wrapped.

Please note that my camera is capturing more blue light than it is visible with human eye and appears as ghost purple in photos and videos.
