An absolutely spectacular brooch showcasing a dramatic Australian black opal. Opal has been described in this way: “Some opal carry such a play within them that they equal the deepest and richest colors of painters. Others…simulate the flaming fire of burning sulphur and even the bright blaze of burning oil.” This description perfectly encapsulates our opal. A very special gemstone, it displays a kaleidoscope of every color in the rainbow. Bright flashes of red, orange, and violet collide with softer pops of yellow, green, and blue, all against a dark gray background.
The stone measures an impressive 29.4 mm wide and weighs approximately 24 carats.
Opals this size are incredibly rare. There is some crazing on the surface of the stone, but there are no cracks. Mounted in an unusual abstract setting in heavy 18K yellow gold, this brooch would make quite the statement on a jacket lapel or dress. It can even be converted into a necklace by a jeweler!
