Very Fine Black Opal from Lightning Ridge, Australia. Vivid and very "present", this fine gem opal displays predominantly red play-of-color with spectral broad flashes of green, orange, yellow and blue, with true black potch to the reverse of the oval cabochon. This is as fine a stone for the serious collector as can be desired. Weighing approximately 10.39 carats and measuring 16.5 x 13.0 x 6.5mm Estimate: US$ 60,000 - 80,000 (£39,000 - 52,000/€46,000 - 62,000)
