74.2ct Lightning Ridge Black Opal

Item Information

Dimensions (mm) 37.5 x 26.5 x 10.5mm
Weight (carats) 74.2 carats
Body Tone 3 N
An incredible, large and fiery black opal from the Grawin field near Lightning Ridge.

This stone has full face colour from every angle with red-orange dominance with green-yellow.

On one corner of the stone, there is a slight window where a sand inclusion can be seen but this does not impact the stones look in any significant way. The stone could be made slightly smaller to make the face near flawless but the largeness of the stone and colour just seems to override that minor flaw.

It is well cut and polished with a low dome and thick, rounded back ready to be set.

The body tone is N3-4 with a brightness of 3 (bright)

An incredible piece to make a very high end piece of jewellery or used as an investment. Please feel free to contact me for more information and/or any genuine offers.
