42.10ct Australian Boulder Opal Stone. ALL WEIGHTS & MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE. I weigh & measure every item but scales may not be calibrated the same. Outstanding Big Aussie Wood Opal.Superb Mix of Wood & Opal Crystal. Rare Cathedral (stained glass) Window Pattern. Opalized Wood is formed when the cells of ancient timber. Are replaced over time by opal crystal as the wood fossilizes. Makes it one of the rarest types of Opals.
My photos are taken under a 27 watt daylight lamp. That is also how I enjoy looking at my collection.
Opals are best viewed in natural sunlight but a nice daylight lamp or. LED pen flashlight will bring out the color and fire!
OPALS GET THEIR COLOR FROM LIGHT REFRACTING LAYERS OF SILICA. THEY WILL LOOK DARK OR NOT AS VIVID UNLESS VIEWED UNDER PROPER LIGHTING. I include Enlarged Photos in my Listings to not only show the Detail & Complexity of these Stones, but to also reveal any "blemishes", if there are any. Please check item weight & measurements for size.
All Stones Are 100% NATURAL and as such Might Contain Natural Pitting, Cracks & Inclusions. Please view enlarged photos with this in mind.
I have tried to represent the opals just as they are with no photo enhancing. I use 3 different devices to see how my pictures will look: computers, tablets and phones. It's very difficult to photograph these stones and get an exact color match. Colors my vary depending on device and monitors. If more time is needed or you want to continue shopping just send me a message.
