Mother Nature’s Gem Crystal Opal

Mother Nature formed this gorgeous gem crystal opal over millions of years; we’re just here to give it the final nudge to perfection.

Today, we’ve got a clean skin nobby opal that was found in a shallow dig in Lightning Ridge. This gem has the 3D color-on-color effect that brings layers of life into the stone. The hues and patterns sit on top of each other and shift with the light give this gem a sense of fluidity that’s borderline hypnotising.

This weeks video is a feel-good, dreamy gem crystal opal cutting sequence. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
