Product Information

Australian Lightning Ridge black opal 4.31ct 16.5x11.5mm free form cabochon. Gemstone mined and cut in Australia.

Known for the quality of material it produces and its unique personality of play-of-color patterns, Lightning Ridge is a favored choice for opal. This stone has the renowned black background and is cut into a free-form pear shape. Embellishing the unique shape is a flag-like pattern on the long end separated by two broad-flash areas, giving it a special one-of-a-kind appearance. Its attractive color combination is alive with green-then orange along with a sheet of the famous Lightning Ridge electric blue underlying the entire scene. A must see in person, this stunner won't disappoint.

Ancient Roman scholar and author Pliny the Elder once wrote "There is in them a softer fire than the Ruby, there is the brilliant purple of the Amethyst, and the sea green of the Emerald - all shining together in incredible union..." What a magnificent tribute to Opal, often called the Queen of Gems. Prized for its unique and fiery play of color phenomenon, no opal is more treasured than black opal, especially those found in the Lightning Ridge mining fields of southeastern Australia. After precious black opals were discovered there in the early 20th century, Lightning Ridge quickly became the world's major source of the finest black opal. The most coveted of all opal varieties, black opal is called the "king of opals". Its dark background color sets the spectral colors ablaze, much like a storm cloud behind a rainbow. Today, the Lightning Ridge fields yield little of these precious opals, which has only led to its increased desirability among collectors across the globe.
