❄️🌈 Even a video doesn’t do this specimen justice–the fabulous range of colors on this Ethiopian Opal will blow your mind! The opal itself is clear, with a double layer of golden shades along a fanned-out edge. The black background showcases the ridiculous flashes of color present on this opal–the white marble background displays a true likeness of this piece. Lustrous, bright, and super colorful small specimen, for Opal lovers or jewelry artisans! ❄️🌈 Locality: Ethiopia. 0.50" x 0.63" x 0.38", 1.99 g (0.071 oz, 9.4 cts)–$40 on PhenomenalGems.Etsy.com. #ethiopian #opals #opalporn #lime #lemon #citrus #golden #fire #flame #raw #natural #specimen #collection #display #healing #minerals #crystals #rocks #gems #nature #rainbow #wirewrap #jewelrysupply #phenomenalgems #etsy #etsysellersofinstagram
Well this is lucky. Apparently for this FossilFriday I’m starting with ammonites in stuff.
This is a look at one of our favourite ammonites, prior to the outer matrix being polished. These ‘Cannon ball’ nodules (rocks) are thought to be exclusive to the Yorkshire Coast, found nowhere else in the world. They rarely contain fossils, but when they do, they typically contain an Eleganticeras sp. ammonite. This fossil here is featured as found. When prepared, the outer pyrite coating of the nodule will be polished, to achieve a golden mirror effect.
Rhodochrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral with chemical composition MnCO3. In its (rare) pure form, it is typically a rose-red color, but impure specimens can be shades of pink to pale brown.This example from Park Co., Colorado, USA
