Exactly like the pictureIt was very beautiful, as I am an opal addict! I prefer faceted opal over the cabochons so when ever I find a faceted one for a good price I buy it right up! Looks exactly like the picture! February 24, 2015

Wow! What a beauty!I know this opal is synthetic but the play of color on this gem is mesmerizing! I love this unique addition to my collection. Thanks JTV! December 21, 2014

Just What I Needed!I needed some opals to make simple drop earrings (with JTV earring castings, of course). I tried with Ethiopian Opals, but the ones I used were "just not right". I've looked at the Gilson lab opals for quite some time. I decided to order a pair, and they turned out to be perfect! The play of color is excellent, and they look great in my castings. I highly recommend these opals for anyone who might need two stones that are very similar. October 20, 2014
