This is a specimen of rough firey contra luz opal from Virgin Valley in Nevada USA.The area is known for its unusual fire play in wood ,limp casts and bark replacement.The opal has a tendancy to craze when dried too fast, possibly from the charcoal or manganese contained in them, or it could be the sulfur. We just know we lose most to drying somehow but a small percentage is stable.We are offering this specimen wet and we will ship it wet .This material is very clear and jumps out of the black backing so we have included a hand shot also.A great addition for any opal collection.
