All I can say is wow! These are incredible looking stones:
This is just a stone though, Not a photo of a stone with a Hubble Space Telescope image pasted over it. Not a hologram made inside some piece of
glass. Not a portal to another dimension. Just a stone, of which a space wizard trapped some piece of a Universe inside
The stone is an opal, a "very fine American contraluz opal found" in Opal Butte, Oregon, according to
, the auction house that sold it last May for around $20,000.
Their description says that the 4.6 x 4.4 x 1-centimeter gemstone is a "clear, transparent crystal body having a fine, firey play-of-color that is
gem quality. The piece has a botryoidal jasper formation which forms a unique inclusion."
I think it looks beautiful and almost overwhelming to look at, even more so to own such a stone.

Unfortunately I will never own such things, but at least I have the power to see such wonders
