2.6ct Lightning Ridge Dark Opal

Item Information

Dimensions (mm) 13 x 8.2 x 3.8mm
Weight (carats) 2.6 carats
Body Tone 4 N
A beautiful dark opal cut from a Coocoran field, Lightning Ridge nobby.

The stone has great colour in orange-red dominance and was very close to being a gem. There is a natural sand inclusion visible in the face and the best colour is a little directional. Apart from the inclusion, the overall look of the stone is still very attractive and would still make a great ring or pendant stone.

There is also some subtle body tone changes within the stone and body tone ranges from N4-5.

Stone is well cut and polished with flat top, good thickness and nice bevelled back ready to be set.
