Honduran Opal

Honduran Opal was formed during volcanic eruptions in the country of Honduras in Central America, between Nicaragua and Guatemala. They are the oldest opal mines in the world, and a lot of Honduran farmers actually subsidise their income by mining opal. Honduran Opal is similar to the Andamooka Opal in its appearance and composition in that it is opal within a matrix, in this case volcanic black basalt. These opals are often coated in resin or similar to seal the stone and stop it absorbing anything else, and to show off the colour.
