Carved opal measures 18mm x 16mm. The opal is in very good condition and free of cracks or chips. The opal is set upon an onyx base (25mm).

The opal exhibits a nice color matrix in natural sunlight with flashes of green, yellow, orange, purple, turquoise and red. Set upon a black onyx base the horse head takes center stage. The entire process to carve an opal involves a high level of expertise in both gemstone carving and jewelry making, a time-consuming process the results in a miniature work of art.
