Pineapple Opal

     Opal (SiO2·nH2O) Pseudomorphs are created by the deposition of opal in casts (molds) of fossil bone, teeth, shell, belemnoids (ancient relatives of cuttlefish), crinoids (sea lillies), wood, fir cones and even skeletons of large prehistoric animals. Many of these fossilized forms contain exceptional quality noble opal.

     White Cliffs, Australia is the only place where these very rare pseudomorphic “pineapple” opals have been found. They were formed when a mineral crystal of glauberite (or ikalite) was first replaced by calcite and then opalised.


All year round Cosmos guides share their knowledge and wonder of the night sky. With the use of powerful telescopes, you travel thousands of light years. 

We were lucky to see Jupiter, the craters on the moon, a star opalising (happens only 4 days/yr) and the constellations: Jewel box, Orion and Southern cross. It was too bright from the moon to see the milky way.
