Lightning Ridge, New South Wales
Here is a wonderful loose natural Lightning Ridge black opal from the remote opal fields of outback New South Wales. This beautiful oval shaped opal displays a pattern referred to as Chinese Writing. The colours are a lovely combination of blues and greens with underlying hues gold and orange. The opal is an ideal shape and size for any jewellery setting but it would particularly suit a ring or a pendant. An exceptionally fine natural Australian black opal.
