Australian Coober Pedy Opal, generous in size (these are usually really small opals!), gorgeous in its fire
Accompanied by a lovely little micro-faceted Mexican fire opal rondelle
Shining and real!
I love the little pit in the stone: it shows that the lapidary artist trusted that more digging (i.e. grinding) may reduce the fire in the stone and so he or she opted for a tiny imperfection
as a sacrifice for the greater good: a rainbow of light at every angle.
18 inches of angelic companionship for the heart and soul
