Things are not always what they appear to be, especially when you look at the tiny world.
What looks like a babbling brook or a tidal pool coastline is actually a macro photograph of a Peruvian blue opal by photographer Mike Woodward.
Peruvian opal (also called blue opal) is a semi-opaque to opaque blue-green stone found in Peru, which is often cut to include the matrix in the more opaque stones. It does not display play of color. Blue opal also comes from Oregon in the Owyhee region, as well as from Nevada around the Virgin Valley.
This macro photograph is of a piece of opal approximately 3.5x6cm, and was captured digitally with a 103 megapixel camera, and then printed on aluminum to retain the exquisite details. A photo of the entire opal accompanies this piece.
