opal unset-VERY RARE HUGE BLACK OPAL CRYSTAL FROM LIGHTNING RIDGE

Main color is blueish purple with green but it also has an amazing flash of red crimson as the stone is turned. This stone is all opal. the back of the opal is also full of color with additional green.
This stone has been cut in undulating fashion. that is, the surface of the stone has followed the contours of the color so that it has mountains and valleys and the shape of the opal is free form. You have to see this amazing piece to believe that such stones exist. Here is a video of it. Leave a note on the blog below or fill in the contacts form if you would like to discuss this stone.
