Queensland Pipe Opal with Undersea Ridges and Tanzanite Fringe. Ring Size 8 1/2.
This pipe opal has ridges of boulder material on its underside that show through the top like gorgeous underwater landscapes. Violet, blue, aqua and pink shades and shimmers are highlighted by the fringe of stones along the lower edge--tanzanite, blue sapphire, apatite, pink sapphire and amethyst. The appearance of this opal really changes from every angle--appearing lighter and darker and always fascinating. The opal is wrapped in 22k gold, beads wrapped in 14k headpins and the silver is oxidized to near black.
