This is a dramatic boulder opal with vivid violets and blues, a dramatic creamy stripe and an undulating surface. I decided to highlight the drama by creating an oxidized silver bezel with an 18k gold wire rim. It sits on one of my swirled bands with gold and silver accents. Size 8 1/4. Could be enlarged up to an 8 3/4. The opal measures 1 inch tall and 3/8 of an inch at its widest point.
