CANDY STRIP OPAL ROUGH
This is a slice of natural untreated rough silica specimens from Utah USA. They are also known as bacon opal due to its intersting strips of assorted colours-this is quite a collectors item.It takes a good polish.

The quality varies quite a bit. Most is in layers of honey brown and
cream (hence bacon) but other hues occur including purple and red.
Almost none of it shows the mixed flash of precious opal, but it is an
interesting material nonetheless.
admin adjustment seller cleartly stated rough and image taken in water and are not polished The photo showed these as being sparkly. They arrived rusty and ugly, in no way polished. Very disappointed.
QUALITY ROUGH Reply:
photo is taken with stones wet as per description they are rough pieces that need polishing , pls read description correctly
Gorgeous colour with great translucency. Lovely pieces, couple of flaws, but will keep one as specimen & freeform polish the others to set. And Thanks for the little Pyrite gift- though it looks more like Chalcopyrite??.
