home / agates worldwide / Asia / Turkey / Eskesehir, Opalite

In the proximity of the Chalcedony deposits of Eskesehir are also finding locations of interesting structured Opalite. The Opalite knobbies are partly polychrome and concentrically coloured. The colouring can go from white to blue, from yellow over white to blue and with earlier finds frequently from dark-brown to cream-coloured. The pattern of the Opalite is enriched by a multiplicity of dendrites, which are inviting various sujets to associate - trees, whole landscapes etc.

In earlier times, were mentioned like already above, different colour and harder, crack-free nodules were found. The today's finds impress further by their pattern, but are however more brittle.
