This moody seam black opal I have sculpted into one big piece rather than chopping it up into small stones. I was chasing colour embedded in the jet-black potch. The opal rolls to life in the hand with vivid green and gold flashes contrasting against the inky black potch background. Speckly green and blue flickers can also be seen across the face of the stone. The shape and undulated relief of the opal is similar to that of a volcanic island along the Pacific Rim.

This opal would suit a pendant or bangle. It is good value for a large stone. 

NB: All stones are cut by me in my Sydney studio.
