IN THESE ROCKS
I love opals.
These are the rocks (minerals)
that have fire inside.
The best opals are "black opals"
from the Lightning Ridge mine
in southern Australia
When you hold a black opal,
it's like there's a little light inside
flashing blues, greens and reds.
(I'm lucky to own 2 black opals,
acquired years ago - photo 3 & 4.)
On a recent trip to Australia,
I discovered how rare these opals
(I still want to retire, and go
dig for black opals at Lightning Ridge.)
