This is a carved opal figure of a Mile or Laughing Buddha. Buddha is robed but bare chested, holding a small child. It is mounted on a silver wired oval teak footed base. Opals are delicate (Mohs hardness scale of 6) and not able to be faceted like other genstones. Their allure is in their translucence. The Chinese carvers are the most adept at their carvings in opal, as evidenced in this piece. It shows lovely areas of iridescence, distinctive to the opals. It is 4 3/4" tall overall. Total carat weight 984.99. The piece is in fine, excellent condition with the only damage a very minuscule nick to the finger of one hand. SC.
