This is a Natural Australian Coober Pedy opal slice that is set on top of natural Queensland iron ore material with adhesive. This technique of making a doublet with an opal can really enhance the amazing quality of the stone, by putting it on a dark background it pushes the colors and the pin fire to the top, making the viewer see the intensity of the stone. An opal doublet is a thin layer of opal, backed by a swart mineral such as ironstone, basalt, or obsidian. The darker backing emphasizes the play of color, and results in a more attractive display than a lighter potch. It also makes the stone more durable and strong.

This would be perfect stone to set in silver or gold. This would make a beautiful pendant or ring.
