CP11M22-15.6gm15.6 Gram (78.0 Carat) Australian Opal Rough-11 Mile Opalfield

SOLD

This year’s trip to Coober Pedy (May 2022) found very little rough opal available with very few opal miners still working the old opalfields. With the lack of opal, prices of gem quality opal were extremely high. Remarkably, I did find a rare top gem parcel from 11 Mile opalfield...beautiful high yield opal with bright skin-to-to skin flashes of color in easy to cut slab-like gems...this stone is from that stunning parcel.
Exceptionally bright multicolor flashes under a cretaceous clam shell fossil on the top of this large gem...quite a rare find.
Dimensions: 43mm x 34mm x 14mm thick.
Weight: 15.6 grams or 78.0 carats.
