World's largest opal matrix
It was recently discovered in the outback opal fields of South Australia.
It weighs 55,000 carats and measures 30cm x 15-20cm x 4cm.
It is set for auction in the UK, valued at just over one million dollars.

A Universe in Opal, so extremely beautiful.
I would love to be able to use a stereo microscope
