Large White Opal Specimen from Olympic Field 465 ct
You can’t find specimens of this size and quality around these days! This piece was apparently offered to Queen Victoria when it was in the rough. It was not selected but other similar pieces from the same mine were to make a famous necklace that she had made. Second video shows this opal in its rough form before we polished it.
