This 39 Carat Solid Opal Rub from Lighting Ridge is offered without reserve. This is a light Base stone with a little color on its back. It is backlit to show it's translucence. It's thicker in the middle and thinner toward one edge in particular. When photographed, the stone looks like it is a carved bust of a royal.Maybe a Pharaoh or a Chief of a Western tribe.. Before seeing that face in the stone, I thought the best thing to do was saw through the 2 sand pits and make two twin stones. This stone was mined in the'00's in Australia when it was easier to get good rough and the government and fires and floods weren't closing all the mines...
The lines on the grid are 1/2 inch apart. These photos were taken against the Grid background for the closeup shots.

Normally the stone appears larger in the photo than in reality. This is because a 10mm stone will show in the item listing photo as a 100mm stone on an average size laptop screen.Please check in the item specifics section for the actual dimensions of all listed items. It is difficult to achieve total accuracy in representing opal with digital photography for the following reasons. The human eye sees objects slightly differently to that of the digital camera because of the different mechanisms involved with how they register light. Each persons eyes see a little differently to the next persons eyes. There is a tendency for variation in many computer screens that are manufactured and calibrated a little differently to their competitor products.
Example; a LED screen will have a lot more contrast than a Laptop Screen. The opal colors and patterns as seen in actuality are a result of a complex combination of refraction, diffraction, diffusion and reflection of light from the opal structure. When an opal is viewed with different light sources and different light intensities the effect of the stone can change a little from one light source to the other.
The combination of these facts means there will be some degree of inaccuracy when representing opal with digital photography. To compensate for these factors I like to list our products by including still photos and a movie with all care and techniques applied to represent the item as accurately as possible.
