LRnobbie2-1oz1 Ounce Lot Rough Lightning Ridge Opal Nobbies

Photograph of a 1 kilo lot of rough nobbies from Lighning Ridge

SOLD

Well...these are unworked (or unrubbed) Rough Lightning Ridge nobbies...with a bit of seam opal in the mix. And this is a gamblers grade as many of the nobbies show no color on the outside of the nodules. If you are fortunate enough to hit a seam of bright color on black, a finished cab can fetch $500/carat or more.
These Lightning Ridge nobbies have been run through an agitator at a puddling dam to remove excess matrix which almost rough tumbles the nobbies. The photograph is of an 1 kilo lot from this nobbie parcel. This selection is for a 1 ounce lot only. See another listing for a discounted 3 ounce lot.
Your opal parcel will come from this photographed parcel. Scale=20mm.
