Lightning Ridge, New South Wales
An absolutely stunning loose natural Australian black opal from the world renown Lightning Ridge opal fields in the remote outback of New South Wales. The opal fields of Lightning Ridge produce the famous black opal of which this is a very fine example. This black opal displays the full spectrum of colour including the rare and highly desired red and has been finished in a highly polished oval shape making it ideal for a ring or pendant. Opals like these really need to be seen in person and held in the hand to fully appreciate the dynamic and constantly moving play of colours, but what I can say is that if you like the pictures you will definitely love the gem.
