Cacholong Opal Polished Slice No1
This super slice of Cacholong Opal comes from Russia and is actually a mix of White Opal and fine grains of Chalcedony.
It you just glance at it, it looks white, but look closer and it is white with very subtle shades of blue/grey and/or cream. This creates a lovely subtle sheen that perhaps looks like porcelain.
We couldn't pin down why this stone is actually called Cacholong Opal, some people saying that the name derives from milk or the colour of milk, others saying that it means Beautiful Stone whilst others say that it is simply a made up name to distinguish this stone from other forms of White Opal.
Wherever the name comes from, this is a very nice slice indeed !
