SOLD Opal - precious opal
stock #SOLD 15.1-137
Carbonera Mine, La Trinidad, Tequisquiapan Municipality
5.1 x 3 x 1.5 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
Unusual locality for this sort of opal that looks very Australian. The Carbonara mine in Mexico has produced mostly a reddish "Fire Opal" but small amounts of precious Opal with a milky white base have been found over the years. This piece has quite good fire with red, green, blue and some orange color flashes.
