This is an amazing opal. It has a stunning floral harlequin pattern where multiple patches of color flash on and off as you move the opal about.
This creates a very dynamic play of color that glistens and sparkles in all lighting conditions. A stone of this quality is not commonly seen and is sure to please all who see it. The stunning fire in this opal can be seen with nothing but the flame of a single candle making it a true dinner stone.
Not synthetic, not a doublet or a triplet. The opal was mined from the earth, skillfully cut from the rough into its current finished form, and then masterfully set into the setting you see.

Otherwise the images of the opal are likely making it look much larger than its true size. Also, any white spots you see are likely reflections of the lights used for photography. Opals are exceptionally beautiful gemstones. They have fire inside of them that flashes and rolls as you move them around.
To us, it seems that each opal has energy trapped inside of it; almost like an eternal sunset. As the colors flash and roll, it's almost as if the opal is telling a story. So, as you look at the opal, listen to it.
About Our Pictures and Videos. When you hold an opal in your hand, it should look better in your hand than the images used to show it - not the other way around. It is never our intention to portray an opal better in our images than it appears in real life. The images you see are accurate to the best of our digital limitations.
Generally, with the opal in hand, you will see higher luster with greater depth and liveliness than the images portray. You should know that it is impossible to express the exact nature of an opal in images.
Many opals look different under different lighting conditions. Make sure to look at your opal with the sun at your back and coming over your shoulder.
Not all opals look best in full sunlight. Some opals look better with less light and some opals look drastically different on cloudy days or in the morning light. We hope you have fun exploring the wonderful world of opal. The item "14K GOLD 20.10 CARAT ETHIOPIAN WELO GEM FIRE OPAL PENDANT NECKLACE with DIAMOND" is in sale since Saturday, May 2, 2020.
