Cut Cornered Radiant Triangle Cut Andamooka Opal, Australia, 1.76 cts

Most gems flash the color that they actually appear to be before cutting, but faceted opals tend to generate a completely different color which is usually from yellow to orange, even if the uncut opal appears to be completely colorless.
