Stunning Opal Butte with landscape and rainbow color plays

Item Information

Dimensions (mm) 4 x 4 x 2.54mm
Weight (carats) 104 carats
Colors
Description: Absolutely beautiful stone from Opal Butte, origin of some of the most remarkable opals. Famous for the remarkable landscapes complimented by the rare rainbow color plays. Rainbow is a unique form of color play that breaks the light coming into the stone into a haze of colors, and bends the light into prisms that shoot through the stone creating an otherworldly effect. This one is predominantly contra luz, which means the light source needs to be coming from behind to show off the finest color.  As of 1/19/2018 it is possible it will appear in the February issue of Swedish magazine Stockholms Skrivbyra. I will update if it makes the deadline for the upcoming issue.
