The fire is showing in a beautiful and very RARE Chinese Writing pattern. The fire in this opal is of the richest neon 5 out of 5 bright green shades over a blue background.

The electrifying colours move in one broad rolling flash that continually moves over the opal from side to side. The colours are first class, with shades of neon fire ranging from crisp green to turquoise greens and peacock blues. Fascinating show all on a N1 background. Fantastic in all lights.
