These bright grey and black opals in rough from Lightning Ridge, Australia were mined in the early 00's and set aside for retirement in a vault. The longest measures 39x12x8MM and weighs 16 Carats. The next measures 18x15x13MM and weighs 17 Carats. It has some dark/black base visible inside.

The next measures 21x14x8MM and weighs 10.5 Carats. The last measure 12x12x4MM and weights 5 Carats. 48.5 TCW for the 4 pieces. It's a nice parcel of solid opal with the color you see in each piece.

These rubs were mined before terrible flooding and fires made rough opal of any quality so hard to get. The grid is 1/2 by 1/2 Inch and the Ruler is in Millimeters. We pride ourselves by doing our best to provide an excellent product and service to all our customers. We take extra care with our packing to help ensure the safe arrival of your items. The amount of time spent in transit within the postal system is outside of our control. Normally the stone appears larger in the photo than in reality. This is because a 10mm stone will show in the item listing photo as a 100mm stone on an average size laptop screen. Please check in the item specifics section for the actual dimensions of all listed items.

It is difficult to achieve total accuracy in representing opal with digital photography for the following reasons. The human eye sees objects slightly differently to that of the digital camera because of the different mechanisms involved with how they register light. Each person's eyes see a little differently to the next persons eyes. There is a tendency for variation in many computer screens that are manufactured and calibrated a little differently to their competitor products. Example; a LED screen will have a lot more contrast than a Laptop Screen.

The opal colors and patterns as seen in actuality are a result of a complex combination of refraction, diffraction, diffusion and reflection of light from the opal structure. When an opal is viewed with different light sources and different light intensities the effect of the stone can change a little from one light source to the other. The total aggregated combination of these facts means there will be some degree of inaccuracy when representing opal with digital photography.

To compensate for these factors I like to list our products by including still photos with all care and techniques applied to represent the item as accurately as possible.
