FABULOUS Wood Opal - Some Nice Colors......
__________________________________________________________
*** The Virgin Valley Opals are wood replacements, created in Miocene times...
It seems that large volumes of silica rich volcanic ash blanketed a lake;
Silica from the ash filtered down, and replaced driftwood, which had gathered on the lake shores, with some of it becoming opal; with some having the brightest color play of any opal on the planet!


* Virgin Valley Nevada Opal is almost all wood that has been replaced by opal.

* Most 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 wood, they can often be dried and polished.

* Virgin Valley Opal is quite rare in dry, stable form...
