More information about Opal Unset free-form crystal
These crystal opal stones and their close cousin, white opals or milk opal are some of the best in the world because of the fact that crystals and white opals have been mined for centuries, if not for thousands of years. European supplies came from the mines in Hungary which are all but mined out now for these stones The difference between crystal and “white opals is that crystals are more translucent, in that you can actually see down deep into the stone. White opals is opaque, the color being on the surface of the stone. Crystal opals are the more expensive variety.
