Jar of Mexican Opals
One Jar of rough Mexican Cantera opals from the Magdelena mine. Cantera is the Mexican name of the host rock, rhyolite.
This jar contains mostly red and orange fire opal though one can see two white opals.
This jar measures 4 3/4" tall and 1 3/4" in diameter.
I bought these originally with the intention of learning lapidary work. No time for that. What was I thinking?
A great idea though would be to place them in a decorative bottle with water and use them as a decoration like this:
This jar marked #1.
