Rare Full Mussel Crystal Opal Australian Specimen 53 carats L45

| /
This opalised fossil was mined recently by our company in our Dead Horse Gully claim north west of Coober Pedy Australia.

The ancient mussel shell was ubiquitous in the vast shallow inland Eromanga sea in what is the central Australian outback Today.

After 30 years in the opal business, we firmly believe opal can be the most beautiful gem on Earth, and we love the colourful characters and lifestyle of the outback opal fields. Here at World Class Opal we are privileged to do our best to acquaint the world with the colour, light and beauty that quality Australian opal has to offer.

Item Specifics:

WEIGHT: 53.6 carats, weighed dry.

DIMENSIONS: Approx: 31 mm by 20 mm by 15 mm.

This is an untouched fully opalised shell apart from having most of the host shale removed.

This piece would yield many carats of beautiful blue green Gem Crystal, but is possibly better left as a specimen.

We do not sell opal simulants of ANY sort. All of our opal is 100% guaranteed natural Australian opal.

The color variations in some photos are due to different light angles and distances. All of our auctions are photographed with macro settings under a halogen lamp. In some photo's the opal is immersed in water.
Please check the dimensions carefully as the opal will not be as big in your hand as it looks on your monitor! Please check the description carefully before bidding and view your purchased rough opal wet in sunlight or in a dark room with a direct light source ie: desk lamp, down light etc. (As photographed and practiced throughout the opal industry).
World Class Opal maintains a 30 day money back guarantee on all items returned on their original packaging and condition.
Love it or your money back!
