The Oregon Opal with the Ocean inside

“Exceptional and very rare Oregon opals with precious color play. These have a visual effect of being underwater when held to light. A combination of the facets and the colors create an unearthly effect.

Photographs are taken in either indoor or outdoor lighting. I strive to get the most accurate photograph possible and each opal demands a great amount of attention to photograph it well. I do not change or enhance any of my photos with photoshop or any other program/method. All pictures are taken dry so that you can see what this gem will really look like. This material has hydrophane properties and can be greatly enhanced when soaked in water, but I don’t believe that accurately portrays the opal being offered. ”
