Opal Pattern Types Revealed on Video

If you only watch one video on opal pattern types make it this one – our best yet. It’s all well and good to see an image of a pattern but, in order to really understand how it works, you must be able to see it move and emerge though a stone.

The following opal pattern types are covered:

  • Rolling Flash
  • Mackerel Sky
  • Boulder Matrix

  • Feather
  • Asteria
  • Flagstone
  • Sheen
  • Chinese Writing
  • Pinfire
  • Chaff

    I think the asteria is 1 of the best and really amazing

      Flash of fire is when you move the stone a flame of fire moves across the piece just like a fire. 🙂
