Rated 5 out of 5 by GemChic Stunning Opal - Thrilled to Own
The play of color and flashes of brilliance in this stone are superb. I love it and it will be a great part of my gemstone collection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GemLovinGal On the fence...
My stone measured 13.89 x 9.89 mm., so it was just a tad small, but it has such beautiful red and blue-violet colors. My only complaint is that the slice of opal in the middle is VERY thin! It's so thin you can see the cut lines in parts of the opal. (It's difficult to describe.# It kind of makes it look "cheap" though. I won mine on JTV Auctions and I suspect the visibility of the cutting lines in the opal is why it was in the auctions, as many #not all) of the gems and jewelry in the auctions are items that were returned or not quite up to par, etc. I'll probably still keep it since I've wanted a black opal for so long and the colors are full-spectrum. I'd rather have one that does not show the lines but for half price this one will do for now

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alfa33 bright flashes of color
This is a showy and flashy cabachon .... but mine does not have as much color as the photo above. The actual size is 14.1 x9.9 x 3.8mm. The background color is close to a flat black or very dark charcoal. The color show is mostly very bright red-orange and green and less than shown in the above photo - but there are hints of bright gold and bright light electric blue also ... all under incandescent lighting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StraightShooter2011 ABSOLUTELY BEAUITIFUL . . .
This cabachon has more color play and brilliance than any of the other triplet-style opals I have purchased from JTV. I have had many, many compliments on this stone (which has now been mounted into a ring). I would definitely make this purchase again. Thanks JTV!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patti13 Beautiful stone
This was a great pick for my first opal. Have wanted one for a long time and it is all I expected and more. Just wish it would have been in a setting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by livinitup Not as good as the picture, but nice.
Has a milky sheen to it that distorts some of the color from coming threw. Overall satisfied, plan to make a piece for a necklace...

Beautiful color play. Will be a ring or a pendant but in the meantime a wonder of nature to behold and admire. Thanks JTV

Rated 5 out of 5 by raftlife Very pretty
This opal is quite pretty. Lots of color and different colors at that. I can't wait to find just the right casting for it.
