Story

The opal is a mysterious gem with a characteristic that few others possess – opalescence – a hypnotic shape shifting iridescence of color. Here a lustrous liquid white opal has been cut into an oval cabochon of an estimated 1.2 carats (12 mm by 7 mm). Flecks of neon green and turquoise run rampant in a sea of color accented with hints of orange and golden highlights. The mesmerizing stone is prong set into a ring with a 10k yellow gold top and smooth shank of 14k yellow gold.

Date: Circa 1910.
