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.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
