A beautiful Semi-Black Opal Pendant in the shape of a "heart", carved from a single piece of colourful Lightning Ridge Gem Semi-black solid opal.
The bottom of the opal is green in colour with a touch of blue and above that the Gemstone plays lovely pinkish reds, light orange and touches of sky-blues.
The back of this lovely Gemstone has been cut & polished, showing the natural dark base toned background and a few minor natural inclusions - quite common for Lightning Ridge Black and Semi-Black Solid opal.
On top of this beautiful heart pendant sits a solid 9 carat yellow gold bail inset with 3 diamonds with the stem of the bail being set to a depth of 7.0 mm into the opal.
The face of this opal gem is unblemished with a mirror finish polish.
