Dear Katherine and Cyril, It has been a pleasure to do business with you.In a collection of almost 500 items, this Opal- hyalite is my first australian fluorescent stone! Hurray for australian post , only 8 days to travel halfway around the world! Regarding the opal , it is way better to see it in person , the icing coverage is wonderful and the uv response has a very good level! Thanks a lot and best regards from little, little France.
