LRnobbies16-1oz1 Ounce Lot Rough Lightning Ridge Opal Nobbies

18 Ounce sample from this large nobbie parcel


Well...these are unworked (or unrubbed) Rough Lightning Ridge nobbies...mostly China Hat nobbies. 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 and almost rough tumbles the nobbies. The photograph is of an 18 ounce random sample from this nobbie parcel. This section is for a 1 ounce lot only. See another listing for a discounted 3 ounce lot.
