Mintabie Vertical Opal. Colours can look different and often more vibrant depending on reflected light of clothing, skin, etc. Mintabie opal is a personal favourite for this reason.
Vertical opals as the name suggests are found in the face of the mine coming down natural cracks and mineral lines vertically as apposed to Horizontally like seam opal. They are a lot harder to find but make gorgeous pendants.
Set in a hand crafted 9ct solid gold setting made by me in my workshop.
Free form pendant shape. Large stone, flashes of green, blue, orange, yellow.
Opal always looks best in natural sunlight. Photographs never bring out the true beauty of opal. Any minor imperfections, if present, will not be detailed in the description but our photos have been taken to be as honest as possible. Any imperfection we think will impact the stone's stability will be detailed. Please look at the photos closely before making your purchase.
