Aside from the insanely high monetary value of this crystal opal, the beautiful refracted imagery inside it makes it truly remarkable. The inside of the crystal opal looks like an underwater scene that includes the beautiful rays of light coming from the surface.

The crystal will have you questioning whether there is an entirely different reality existing within it. The surreal opal is being sold on the auctioning site, 'Inna Gem,' and it is only being photographed in its dry state. The seller explains, "this material has hydrophane properties and can be greatly enhanced when soaked in water, but I don’t believe that accurately portrays the opal being offered." That is one of the most amazing things about this crystal, when it becomes wet, it can change color and opacity, which makes the image inside even more beautiful.
