    Ooooh I am just rubbing my hands with glee over this one. I love love love opals and in fact was lucky enough in inherit a beautiful earring & pendant set from my mum but I'm always on the look out for more... :naughty: I won this on Opal Auctions website for less than $100 and comes with 2 week money back guarentee so I was happy to try this site out for quality. Will post pics once it arrives. :bigsmile:

    Details:
    SIZE : 10.5 x 8 x 5 MM
    WEIGHT : 2.30 CRT
    ORIGIN : WELO
    COMMENT : no treatment . 100% natural

    I'm thinking an antique-style ring with a halo using my teeny rose-cut moonstones...

    UPDATE:

    This arrived in the mail today and I am so impressed! I'd say its almost better than the photos. The base is a pale milky white (less grey than the pics) but as soon as any light hits it - its an absolute disco ball! :love: Outside in the sun it's stunning... :bigsmile:

    Pretty!!! :love: The colors are so lovely. It is difficult to get pics of opals. The colors never show up as vibrantly as IRL but looking forward to seeing whatever pics you manage to capture and seeing what setting you decide on for your new colorful beauty. :appl:
