Here is the opal I bought from Aussie Treasures, an Ebay store. Thought I'd start with an affordable stone, and this one is gorgeous! Pictures don't do it justice. Great red coloring, and really nice polish on a nice size stone.

I bought this to give this Ebay''er a shot. And I have to say this is a solid piece of opal with better coloring than pictured. So, no plans for this particular stone. I intend to buy another, more expensive stone for a ring.

Pretty! I''ve thumbed through their site a bit too! The red flash looks really nice.

Would you be willing to add your pictures and the ebay picture(s) to the vendor v. PSer picture thread?
