#O-200 

 This is an awesome slab of raw opal from the Coober Pedy mine in Australia, see the excellent play of color across the surface.  We keep it in an aquarium of water to show off the color even more.  Measures 13" x 8".  You can see a seam of opal running deeper with the picture of the side of it.  You can see it's a substantial piece of opal in matrix; we are proud to have it here - Glenn brought it back from Australia himself in 1993.

Here's two close ups of the color and texture of the opal, plus a photo of the back showing the mother stone that it came from.
