15.25 ct Pinfire Glitter Ethiopian Welo Opal

Item Information

Dimensions (mm) 24.74 x 19.36 x 6.87mm
Weight (carats) 15.25 carats

  • pinfire pattern that looks like glitter!
  • orange, yellow, blue, purple, and green colors.  NOT as red as it appears in the video!!
  • 4/5 brightness
  • very light gray body color
  • flat back with beveled edges for easy setting
  • back of the stone contains 2 pitted areas due to sand inclusions. Removing these would have rendered the stone too thin and fragile
  • I cut all my own stones, with each one being a labor of love
  • My stones have a superb polish, with a smooth, continuous finish with no scratches or flat spots (note how smoothly the reflection of the light source moves over the opal's surface in the video)
  • I don't cut for mass production, but rather to bring out the full beauty of each individual piece of rough opal
  • photos and videos are taken under a low-voltage 50W MR-16 halogen light
  • Opal is a dynamic stone and the magic of its play of color cannot be totally captured in a photograph or video. You truly have to hold it in your own hand to realize its full beauty!
