Val may have found her new favorite gemstone today. While out about, we stopped at Crazy Days at Ken Kay Thompson Jewelry and Val saw her first Ethiopian Opal. While it has some similar characteristics to Australian Opal, it has a translucence to it that allows the color to shimmer and move as light passes through the stone.
Val has purple pansies that worked as a perfect backdrop, contrasting the color in the stone, allowing it to pop while taking a photograph.
Exposure is 1/250, f/5.6 @ ISO400.
