Purple black opal, 5.82ct

This is a large bargain stone. On the dark gray body you can see flashing purple blue and sometimes there is a red and sunflash appearing.  I would recommend to set this opal in a ring, as it needs a movement to show on its best, due to quite pronounced directionality; play of color visible from some angles better than other.

  • 5.82ct, 15.05x11.35x4.92mm, from Lighting Ridge, Australia.
  • Brightness: 1 of 5, very directional;
  • Body tone: N3, Black opal.

*Please note that my camera is capturing more blue light than it is visible with human eye.
