Comment: Dense bodies with green, blue, yellow, red and orange flashes in ribbons and flames on white/yellow background. As all opals of this type (the so called 'precious opala'), they are always different and changing in appearance but each has its unique character. See the close up, reminding of weather maps, and equally ever mobile. Though one is slightly bigger on paper it doesn't show in person as you can see best in handshot. A decorated bezel has shown to be very nice on opal earrings but prongs will do as well if you want to keep budget low. Settings have gone way up with gold prices at record height. Weight, not only labor, has become more important. If you have a local setter, remind him to set the pins high on the upper half so they don't turn (which a good goldsmith should know but then one sees the most unbelievable stuff over the years).
