Few Australian ‘Lighting Ridge’ black opals come as fine and fabulous as this spectacular specimen presented in its original Art Deco splendor – circa 1930. The beautifully proportioned oval cabochon bursts with a multichromatic explosion of electric confetti colors against a deep black matrix background. The gem is embraced by an elegantly designed mounting, hand fabricated in platinum and sparkling with three-quarter carat of bright white diamonds. Entrancing, enchanting, sublime.
