Interesting Fact:
2% of Australian opal is the second (after Black Opal) most prized form of opal, a unique form known as boulder opal. The opal usually forms as thin veins within these boulders, and most stones are cut to include some of the host ironstone matrices. Boulder opal is sometimes referred to as opal in the matrix for this reason.
