Review This Product
Now I Know What Pinfire Really Looks LikeAlthough this cabochon is quite small, it has incredible pinfire. Never knew exactly what pinfire could actually look like. Every color of the rainbow and then some. Am extremely happy with this purchase. Great price for what you get! August 05, 2013

It's black with no fire or color in any lighting.I wasn't so lucky with this stone. It is totally and completely black. I know buying opals from JTV is a gamble, and I just missed out on this one. If shipping didn't cost more than the stone, I'd return it. As it is, I'm just going to throw it away. June 08, 2013

Very nice stones - great value !!Purchased 3 of these "cheaper" stones and also an 8x6 oval stone priced at $20. Was MUCH happier with these 3 smaller stones than the larger & more expensive stone ! The 3 stones I received are very different from each other (which I knew they would be, which is why I bought 3 of them). Two had just a "rolling" play of color, nice colors, good variety of color. The third had beautiful, colorful pinfire! Wish they all had this type of flash, but nature made them in variety, and variety is exactly what I want represented in my collection. Am contemplating returning the larger stone - it also has nice rolling color, but also had an internal "crack" and even though it doesn't pierce the surface, I'm just afraid it will crack eventually (and of course that was the one I wanted to set). Overall, WONDERFUL stones, couldn't be more pleased, especially at this price point!! March 06, 2013
