2290ct Large Crystal Opal with Intense Color

Amazing 2290 carat non-hydrophane crystal opal from Ethiopia! This is one of the best specimens of crystal opal that I've come across due to its size and intense play of color. It looks stunning in direct sunlight and in direct view of lamp/overhead lighting.  

This particular opal does need to be stored moist to keep it from crazing, so we recommend a clear jar or dome filled with water. They make amazing display specimens, but are not suitable for jewelry. We consider this piece to be a Large Cabinet (LGC) mineral specimen. 

*This piece will be shipped wrapped in moist paper towel and you will need to refill the glass display jar with water upon receiving the opal. THIS PIECE MUST REMAIN MOIST, if not, IT WILL craze. We suggest using distilled water.
