The Butterfly Stone / The Red Admiral Opal

This amazing opal resembles the British butterfly the Red Admiral and the predominantly red color is visible from every angle. It’s also called the Butterfly stone. It was found in the Phone Line field during World War 1. It was named in the year 1920 after it was established that it is about 51 carats. A world-renowned Opal expert by the name Len Cram had the following to say about the Butterfly Stone, “When you turn this magnificent gem on its side, it changes from being a butterfly to a full-length picture of a Spanish dancer in a traditional broad ruffled dress and is perfect in movement and pose and aflame with fiery lights”.
