Comment: Almost transparent intense-orange Welo opals as a matching pair. Surprising are the green flashes inside an orange body, a rather harsh color contrast. IGI classified rightly as 'precious opal' for crystals that, at times, are completely transparent even while their bodies continue to shine in neon-ish orange. Quickly changing between yellow, orange, ochre with these green lightning strokes running in between. Obviously, a good shot for earrings. Unless you give us the privilege of setting these two, and in case of studs, remember the poles need to be positioned custom-made, off-center, so that they don't turn in different directions, without gravity keeping them parallel (which doesn't matter in standard-stud round gems but looks forbidding in ovals). See the handshot below, slightly sideways, showing a green lake in one gem. No flaws, inclusions or weak spots, always changing color with every motion. Price includes shipping, one IGI report, the usual set of WildFish perks and charity, plus the above setting advice should you chose an inexperienced local goldsmith
