SSCPOV17-2.9gm2.9 Gram (14.5 carat) Rough Australian Opal-Coober Pedy-Opal Valley Opalfield
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...as you approach Cooober Pedy from the south. 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.
High yield blue/green play-of-color...almost a deep aquamarine color with green/yellow and orange flashes...in a clean crystal base. This color looks stunning with gold.
Dimensions and weights: 2.9 grams-24mm x 12mm x 8.7mm thick.
