Item Description

A beautiful full-sized miniature that hosts almost "finger"-like growths of Opal-AN (formerly Hyalite Opal) sitting atop a group of highly lustrous, well-formed, jet-black Schorl Tourmaline crystals. The Opal ranges from chalky-white to nearly water clear and colorless. The piece is not completely damage free, but the stark contrast of black and white together along with the wonderful aesthetics makes it a desirable and worthwhile piece of this wonderful material from Erongo. The Opal displays a lovely glowing green fluorescence under SW UV light! From the Collection of Shields Flynn.
