Comment: This round dome-shape is a mixture of 1.12 with its color zoning and 2.18 with its mix of flame and pinpoint patterns. The colorzone (visible on images only from the back) give one side of the gem a darker earthy orange, while the other side presents more vivid colors (as in handshot). Again, amazing 89 points make a 7mm round gem, big enough for US ringsizes up to ten or bigger with a halo. The main color-play consists of orange, green, red, but even blue and violet can be found. No dead spots, though it is natural that the color-zoned area exhibits less 'dramatic' flame patterns and more 'stationary' pinpoint or mosaic shapes. No inclusions, no treatments, and color zones are visible only from the back (therefore NOT mentioned in the IGI report). Of the so far presented fire and crystal opals, this is the calmest and least posh gem, though very visible as a whole and fascinating in the details. The main image shows the color-zoned translucent and therefore less 'wild' side of the gem. The close-up handshot below is of the opposite side. I hope the difference is perceptible and a helpful comparison between transparent crystal and translucent flame opal. For far under $1k with all WildFish extras, a value entrance ticket to your first opal experiences.
