Gemstones are always treated as precious, by miners, sellers and buyers alike. However, if such a gemstone shows formations inside it which makes it look more gorgeous, it gets an additional
importance. The opal shown in the above link has cloud like formations and streaks of shimmering bright colors and looks exactly like it has an entire nebula trapped inside it. There are additional
“botryoidal jasper” formations that give it an out-of-this-world look. It was mined in Opal Butte, Oregon and sold for a high price of $20,000 which, however, is completely suitable for the
exquisite beauty of the stone.
