    Beautiful bit of rock, thanks for sharing. I also do macro shots of mineral specimens, but I don’t have any opal matrix as nice as yours :-)

    What is a Matrix Opal? I really like the textures of this….The colorful layers…..I am very interested in knowing a little bit more~!!!!

  • Hi Brenda, thank you for been inquisitive, Opal is a long story, basically the matrix is the matter witch is around the actual opal, it can vary, in this picture it’s the dark lines, the orange, yellow and red.
