A unique & beautiful Carved Solid Gem Opal Pendant, carved from a piece of bright & colourful Lightning Ridge Gem Opal!
This design shape was rather easy to choose as nature had already decided upon how this piece was to be presented out to the world, so after cutting down and removing the top layer of stone, a lovely gem bar of colour remained with the patterning and positioning of the colours naturally forming this shape.
In the areas of the
original opal stone where there was no colour, just
white potch, it was a simple matter to carve away the opal to
the finished carved contoured one that is pictured.
Set several millimetres into the top of this rather unique & colourful opal pendant is a Solid 14 carat yellow gold bail.
Colours at play are flashing and rolling reds, red-oranges, oranges, golds, light greens and sky-blues.
