6.75ct Black Opal – £72,000

Posted by Australian Opals on May 24, 2011

This opal is very lively, showing off very bright, and very rich fiery colours that show all of the time. The deep and strong, bright cherry red, blends to perfection with a mix of green, orange and blues. The peacock blue lays slightly deeper, just underneath the red, a gorgeous shade that contrasts and lifts the show that little extra, making a truly gem quality opal. All colours move with vivid splendor, very, very bright. From every single angle, the show is at its best, the colours are always on show. A constant display of colours that are ever present. The opal has a medium dome and is fantastic in all lights.
