Product Details
These White Created Opal Tortoises are based on the iconic land-based Galapagos Tortoises. Unlike their monstrous cousins, these guys measure 12mm from head to tail and are about 1mm thick. As with all of our White animal shapes, these Tortoises feature a high-mirror polish on both sides and flash brilliant reds, yellows, and pinks, with hints of blue, green, and purple.  They are perfect for inlay work, and nature-themed borosilicate glassblowing projects.

What is 2nd Quality?
 Most of the time an opal will be moved into 2nd quality because it does not have perfect, bright and consistent fire. Other "imperfections" could be that the opal is outside size tolerance (too thin or too thick) or has a small (virtually unnoticeable) scratch or pockmark that is unacceptable based on our 1st quality standards.  No matter the reason the opal is still very usable, (never any compatibility issues) and a great value for the artists willing to accept a little variability in their opals.
