Opal is a hydrated amorphous form of silica, so the process of opalisation refers to something turning into an opal – like for example, a big part of this fossil. Unfortunately, this extraordinary fossil valued at $500.000 was stolen from Vancouver, and was not recovered since, to my knowledge. Personally, I feel that such fossils should be kept in museums, not in personal collections – especially not thieves’.
