Description
~ Opalite cab ~

Offered here is a unique cabochon of green opalite, mined in old Mexico. I wish I knew more about this material, because it's GORGEOUS, and from what I've seen, this gemmy cab was cut from a particularly nice piece of rough. Most is a solid, more uniform color, and more opaque. This example has 'lilly pads' of lemony-lime color that's quite striking, and quite pleasing! It's translucent, as illustrated by the backlit photo, giving the stone a fascinating dimension of depth these photos fail to capture, and there's also a sparkly drusy pocket adding character. It's just bound to make a fascinating item of jewelry, and I encourage you to give it a try. The cab has a well rounded dome of 7+mm, a bold designer shape, and a super slick glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 42x19mm
Weight: approximately 29 carats
