Ethiopian Opal Carving - Plasma Crystal at Treasurion.com

A miniature, crystal opal sculpture. Elegant design, full of flickering, yet strong fire. Within its slightly yellowish crystal body you can find whole display of elusive, metallic flashes. The play of colour is dominated by blue-aqua-green range but you'll glimpse some gold-orange-red at certain angles. Patterns visible in this carving could be best described as a mix between flame, digit and a broadflash. This opal is well suited for an original pendant or to be kept as a collector stone.
