Another stunning Yowah Nut! This one is a massive 265 carats of unique picture gem. We call it the Yowah "Yowie" ( a mythical Australian bush creature) because it's got a mean look & a mouth full of crooked teeth: which are the only white opal in this natural work of art. This is one of those unique specimens that has a mix of opal from different epochs: the surrounding ironstone is approximately 200 million years old; and then somewhere between 50 million years ago (MYA) and 105 MYA, two completely different types of opal came along and infilled the cavities remaining in the original ironstone. We're guessing that the bright pinfire colours are the oldest opal: and the opal in the teeth, which is a white opal showing pink & green, is the younger. Completely different opal being laid down in different epochs probably tens of million years apart is one of the unique features that make some of the Australian opals so rare and inimitable. It is these kinds of opal that we can give an absolutely unequivocal guarantee that there is no other gem like it in the Universe. The colour play is a very beautiful floral pinfire, with really deep crimson reds, as well as orange, green & blue. VERY beautiful!!! Set in a lovely sterling silver setting by Alistair MC which is a real work of art worthy of this rare gem.
"A Gathering of Nuts" This is a beautiful collector's item that is extremely rare (Did we mention VERY beautiful?)
