Item Description

Here we have an uncommon example of Opal-AN (a variety of Opal that was formerly referred to as "Hyalite" from Monok, Hungary. These specimens are rarely seen on the market, and it's a shame because despite the fact that they're some of the lesser known "Hyalites", they're some of the most beautiful examples you'll see from anywhere. This piece features a wonderful GEMMY, colorless, semi-spherical aggregate of Opal-AN beautifully sitting in the center of the Rhyolite matrix, just like an egg in a nest. If you look closely, you'll see the tiny "beads" on the surface of the Opal group, To top it off, the Opal glows with an electric green hue under SW UV light. A wonderful, fine quality eye-catching example of this seldom seen material and a must have for any fan of Opals, fluorescent minerals or just unusual specimens.
