U62-5WUOpal (Var: Precious Opal) SiO2·nH2O

00552730014946307602552.jpg
Rainbow Ridge Mine, Virgin Valley, Humboldt Co., Nevada, USA

Dimensions: 4.5 cm x 1.8 cm x 1.4 cm

Collected at Rainbow Ridge Opal Mine in June 2015 by Rory Howell. My son named it the "Opal Phantom Flame" as the specimen has a phantom and is shaped like a candle flame. Photos taken under solux lamps with Sony DSC-HX200 digital camera. Specimen is more colorful and brilliant under sunlight. Beautiful piece!
