Exquisite large genuine Australia Lightening Ridge black opal. Large solid opal not doublet or triplet. Total weight 19.79 carat. The opal is polished and unset.
Bought from an opal miner about 30 years ago. The miner had opals and I had antiques. We traded opals with antique furniture at my antique store in Southport on the Gold Coast. The shop was closed more than 15 years ago. Measurement: 2.7 cm (L) x 1.7 cm (W).
The battery is there for size comparison. It has nothing to do with the item. As in most antiques, there are inevitably some imperfections that are hard to detect. The photographs form part of the description. The battery is there for size comparison only.
Most of my collection is one of a kind. I bought the items because I liked it for myself.
They were never intended to be resold. Each item has a story and when possible I hand carried in my luggage from all over the world to bring back to Australia. Some of the items have travelled a long way away and some of the items has been with me for 65 years. Be sure to add me to your.I would like to thank my customers for their positive and encouraging feedbacks I received over the years.
