I adore opals - there’s something so magical about them and that nature can make these miracles! Anyway I’ve got a few and wasn’t looking for another and then I saw this unusual one. I realise it’s not to everybody’s taste but I love the rutile in it! It’s on its way to me so here are the vendors photos!

Mesmerizing! It makes me think of coral reefs.

Do you have information on origin? Or how it was formed?

Thanks everybody for your lovely replies. I had thought it look other worldy but actual you’re all right that it looks like an underwater coral reef! I’ve got a video that the vendor has but I can’t remember how to post it!!!!

I was just getting on here to say it looks like a drop of seawater complete with ecosystem. It's so amazing and I can't wait to see your photos of it.

That's one of the coolest opals I've ever seen. Really looking forward to seeing how you'll be setting it.
