Honestly, Opals are challenging to photograph. Depending on the opal, actual colors are best shown in suttle light/shade. These Opals show themselves even in bright sunlight! Each Opal has a special way it sparkles. These photos do not demonstrate the real visuals of each opal. Photos are in various light (sunshine as well as shade) to demonstrate the actual beauty and sparkle of the opals. Ethiopian Opals, 14Kt gold filled components, 19"
