Imagine: the Aurora Borealis captured in a stone - that's what this gorgeous Australian Boulder Opal resembles. Its ironstone background is reminiscent of the dark night sky with beautiful swirling flares of color; predominantly greens, with an ombre spectrum ranging from cobalt blue to hot pink. It's like the Icelandic night skies, concentrated on one small surface.
Such a World Wonder of a stone can hold its own, yet this one is supported by a cast of nearly half a carat of brilliant white diamonds. Two larger round brilliant cuts are suspended at the bottom of the lariat that dangles from the opal's carefully formed bezel. Two smaller diamonds also adorn the chain that stems off the Y shape of the necklace. All four diamonds are set in handmade bezels.
Color juxtaposed on darkness contrasted by sparkling white = the perfect composition.
One of a kind.
*Note: Opals are difficult to photograph as they look different under different lighting conditions and different angles. I do my best to capture them in different lights and as accurately as I can. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions prior to purchase. Opals are soft stones. Please treat them kindly by avoiding chemical exposures and blunt force. *Northern Lights Photo Credit to: travelarize.com
