I'm amazed. Seems opals are pretty hard to get decent images of. At least when I try to... :)

Wow! I had that thing for a few months and became friends with it- what a shame! What kind of lights are you using?

You can send it back to me, see if we can get two good stones out of it.

This is a great photo. Can you give me an idea of lighting type and camera settings.
