Comment: As deep-as-it-gets red-orange before any darkness sets in. The crystal is semi-translucent, emiting a silvery glow rather than the precise glitter of other facetted gems. Note, that such opals do not have a play-of-color, but 'only' one, intense color. Slightly shallow in the center but not windowed thanks to its dense hue and tone. This, as always, allows a trade-off between face-up, near 11x9mm, and carat weight = cost. In Medium Dark 75 all the yellow that sparkles in other fire opals is 'out'. A fantastic bucket-load of eye-catching color for little dough. Some luster, dimmed by the silky crystal, helps with the eye-catching but is not the main attraction; the color plainly is. IGI report, shipping, and all other WidFish perks are included in the, for a limited time, sub-$1k price-tag.
