This Lightning Ridge semi black opal is probably one of my favorite stones that I have cut to date and every time I look at it I am tempted to make it into a piece of jewelry for myself.  It has that very desirable full spectrum range of color that everyone wants, as well as some of the most fun play of color that you can find.  When people look at this stone they can’t stop moving it and watching while every color of the rainbow take turns jumping over and replacing the color from before.  It’s like all the colors are fighting for a position on top.  This opal is a nondirectional stone that looks at you with bright colors from every angle, and would be a real eye catcher in any setting but I personally think that because of the movement of a hand the color play would favor a ring.
