Opal in Matrix is a beautiful multicolored stone with a black base color. Since it is often discovered and mined in Honduras is has earned the name ‘Honduras Black Opal.’ Opal in Matrix is cut in Cabochon to display the gorgeous multicolored effects for which it’s famous. The stone displays its remarkable color properties which are ‘essentially’ tiny flecks of opal that shine naturally brilliant colors. These Opal flecks are embedded randomly in the parent rock rather than the seams of opal that normally appear in ‘Boulder Opal.’ The fact that Opal appears in many forms in many parts of the world lead it to develop in different classes with individually unique qualities.

In my 20's I imported gemstones. I decided to try it again, for gifts. I found GemSelect; studied their website; talked with them and decided to make a purchase.
I would recommend GEMSELECT based upon the variety of gems. Gems that i didn't expect to even be apart of the selection and it gave me more options. Options in which played a key role in finding the right gem. Its always good to have options especially when trying to formulate a good piece of art work that has uniqueness. Which ultimately captures costumers eye appeal.
Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.
