Opal Butte crystal opal

This gem has all faceted faces and contains some really neat matrix inclusions. The mix of of facets, color plays, and minerals creates an almost mystical or "underwater" like scene within.
This has been a finished, faceted gem for over a decade now, and none of the cracks that you can see have developed in that time.
Mining at opal butte is slowing down and as of the last year opal of this quality were literally unseen. The forecast for finding any more precious opal there is not looking good. I have acquired several of these pieces and have decided to let this one go. 
  Base- Crystal
 Measures60x45x41 mm
  Weight: 740 ct
 Color Play Plays of blue, red, orange, yellow, and green.
