CPOV17-P7.3gm7.3 Gram Rough Australian Coober Pedy Opal 2 stone parcel.
Opal Valley Opalfield, 40km south of Coober Pedy, can be seen from the Stuart Highway and lets you know there is precious opal nearby...lots of it. This parcel, found in a previously worked mine, was missed by the original miner...unfortunately. But fortunately I was in Coober Pedy when the parcel was up for sale and was able to buy the entire 5 ounce tops grade, of which this stone was part of.
This is a bright kicky 2 stone parcel with green/blue/gold and sprinkling of orange play-of-color. Individual dimensions and weights:
3.5 gram-24mm x 17mm x 13mm thick
3.8 gram-28mm x 18mm x 8mm thick
Total parcel weight is 7.3 grams.
