Lightning Ridge, New South Wales
An incredibly vivid and vibrant loose natural Australian black opal from the world famous Lightning Ridge opal fields in the remote outback of New South Wales. This stunning opal displays the pattern known as Chinese Writing. It is a beautiful opal in every regard, the deep rich blues and greens with touches of violet and pink rippling and shimmering as they move through the depths. Fine opals have this sense of depth when you look into them, like they are deep pools of light and colours, alive and sensuous- it is not for no reason that they are known as the Queen of Gems.
