______________________________________________________
* Virgin Valley Nevada Opal is almost all wood that has been replaced by opal.
* Many Virgin Valley Opals contain a high percentage of water in their structure,
and they often crack or craze when dried; these types are best stored and
displayed in water.
* When the opal is dispersed in the silicated wood, they can often be dried and polished.
* Virgin Valley Opal is quite rare in dry, stable form...
