Hyalite Opal Specimens on matrix

Available in a few different sizes, these are specimens of distinctive Hyalite Opal on a matrix stone.

It has an interesting glassy appearance – almost like someone has melted glass onto a matrix. Because of this, it is sometimes confused with glass, fake opal, or resin.

These pieces do have a strong fluorescence under UV light, which is what tends to be popular with the collectors of this type of Opal.

In some rare cases these specimens do exhibit play of colour, too. The main sources of this type of Opal are the eastern United States, and eastern Europe, with some exceptional quality pieces found in the Czech Republic.

Hyalite is sometimes also known as ‘water Opal’, ‘jalite’ and ‘Mullers glass’.
