    The look really neat! I wish there were more photos of them in different light and backgrounds. The photos above leave me wanting to see more.

    Amazing. I think it would be disappointing to see these in real life because they would be sooooo small. But the photos are amazing.

    This is so cool! I had no idea til recently that things could get "opalized" and it's such a beautiful effect. Nature is amazing.
