A friend told me that if you put Opals into water, they appear to glow!
The colours are magnified. Vibrantly enhanced.
I had to try this out for myself. I thought this would be a wonderful experience for Our boys to witness too.
So when next in Cooroy on a Thursday, I visited the Gem Man at the local markets and bought a few pieces of Opal Rock.
I poured a large bowl of water and took everything out into the sun.
I must admit, I didn't expect such dramatic results.
What do you think?
Magical, aren't they?
