 :drool:  That is one amazing stone. It probably will make one awful piece of jewellery in it's present form.

Saqsay do you worry that it will be awful in the literal sense (like our fugly jewelry thread)?

I cannot imagine how to set something like that.  I imagine a pendant with a very thin natural bezel because adding more might take it from really cool to really tacky in a nano second.

Personally I'd used it as a decoration in the house I think so I could look at it often..  That is just one beautiful looking opal.

What I picture would be something like the andamooka horror from the tiara thread..........
There is such a thing as too much of a good thing  ;D
