i must have gotten caught up in "auction excitement"and knew better, there was a GOOD reason why this "old" opal had never been sold, or stayed sold. key word,old,and cared for poorly for a LONG time. nice pic. though.(skilled camera operater)
If you are not sastisfied always contact the seller first before leaving negative feedback. The opal pics were just as they came from the camera, remember also that opals are shot from the very best angle when they are photographed.
