This is the strangest Hyalite Opal specimen we've seen because unlike most specimens which are an amorphous blob of hyalite this one actually has a form, and a quite unusual one at that. It looks like some sort of alien soft-boiled egg. The hyalite in the center is a translucent yellow-orange color, and it is wrapped on the sides by a layer of clear, mostly colorless hyalite. This gives the illusion of a bizarre, alien egg yolk. The hyalite is backed by a chalcedony matrix. 

The condition is extremely good with only one possible contact or ding point near the top-left side of the specimen, but it is hard to see unless you look closely for it. Otherwise, there does not appear to be any damage, and the clarity and luster are excellent! 

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
