Small cracks on the biggest opal seam, on the other side you can find a beautiful spotless seam which could be used in jewelry after cutting and shaping. Hard to see on the pictures but there are some very nice bits of color on this stone, blues, green, purple, yellow and even some specks of red!
If you wish to see a video (play of color is way more visible on videos), simply contact us.
The seams that are visible on the pictures have been polished to mirror finish.
These seams of opal still sit in their host rock, which in this case is ironstone or fossilized sandstone. The opal inside is yet to be discovered but the pieces you can already see are sometimes already amazing to look upon, and give a good indication of what can be found inside the rock.
