This Lightning Ridge black opal is on the large side. The blue color is a little bit dull but still looks very nice in the daylight. This is a good stone for someone who wants a large black opal with blue color and for well under a hundred dollars a ct, it’s easy to get something nice made on a budget. As a large black opal I feel that this stone will best suite a pendent, broach, or bracelet.
