Opal is found in many different varieties, and this particular opal is a rare specimen known as "zebra" opal, aptly named because of its striped characteristic. Zebra opal is not currently being mined, and only a select number of gemstones are sold from the original find each year, making it a rare and desirable variety of opal.
This particular Australian zebra opal is a doublet, which is composed from a slice of opal that has been laminated to a piece of iron stone, which is the material opal is naturally mined from. The opal is a free-form triangular shape, and has an amazing play of color featuring vivid blue, green, yellow and orange. Depending on which way you choose to wear the ring, the opal will have a different appearance.
The opal doublet weighs 2.61ct, and is surrounded by a halo of sparkly white diamonds, which also run down the sides of the shank. The 47 round diamonds = .23ct total weight, with H-I/SI2 color/clarity grades. The ring is 14K white gold and is a size 7. The top of the ring measures 11/16 of an inch in length.
