This is a piece of natural rough opal i purchased on my last trip to Banten. Indonesia. This opal is volcanic in origin and this was a wood fossil replacement. This stone is volcanic in origin. It is a common practice here for miners to heat the rough in sand to remove the clay which sticks to the rough and when polished they add a resin to get a better finish as it hides pits ect.
We have taken a photo of the stone dry to show the colour. Note this opal loves strong sunlight to looks its best-in dim light there will be little colour,
The Opal Sheriff program allows our members to request an audit on any auction, which is completed by an independent Gemologist who assesses the accuracy of the item description and pictures.
