  Black Madonna - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Black Madonna (also, Black Virgin) is a statue or painting of Mary in which she is depicted as having fl skin.
In many European languages, especially prior to the pre-modern age, the word "fl" rarely directly meant "person of African race, African descent," but merely "dark in color." In some countries and towns, however, fl madonnas exist because most of the believers are of dark skin or probably the sculptor/artist was of dark origin himself/herself.
The oldest Madonna and the archtype is The Black Madonna of Częstochowa.

 The Black Madonna
The Dark Virgin is clothed in a rigid fabric mantle--- heavily and richly embroidered, so that only Her Hands and Face are visible, While Her hands are in set in continuous prayer.
She's the only Blonde Black Madonna and Child I've ever seen--- She is definitely something of an enigma...I have a bit more research to do on Her---She has a marking on Her dating Her to at least the 1930's.
Beyond general style, the genre of the statue is certainly that of an 'enthroned virgin', typical of the earliest icons of Mary.

The Virgin Rainbow Black Opal was discovered on 11th September 2003 at Twenty Three Mile fields Coober Pedy, South Australia by opal miner John Dunstan and his partner Steve Zagar.
There is debate between an Australian Palaeontologist who asserts that the Virgin Rainbow discovery is a 'historical fossil' and as such can not be sold or leave Australia under the Historical Artifacts Act or similar legislation.
