Extremely large solid black crystal opal cabochon. It has two types of fire depending on viewing angle: green/blue rolling flash fire and green/blue glittering pinfire. The pinfire is very difficult to capture in a picture so it is not very visible on the pictures.

With a unusually high hardness of 6.5 on Mohs scale it is a true gemstone opal which is far more rare and valuable then precious opal. This type of opal is found in only one mine.

Bodytone: N6 / Dark Crystal
Brightness: 3

I have acquired this gem from a collector in Singapore, it was certified by TGL Gemlab in Indonesia.

Shape: Free form cabochon
Color: Play of Color
Transparancy: Highly translucent
Hardness: 6.5
Origin: Lightning Ridge, Australia
Treatment: None
