Dendritic (Montana Moss) Merlinite
Merlinite is a chalcedony (Agate) that has both opaque and translucent areas, with some stones show a glowing pearl-like chatoyancy. Although some may call this stone an Opal because of its glow, it is not! While beautiful in its own right, Merlinite does not have the iridescent color play of real opals. Not all the Merlinites in Miriam’s Private Gemstone Collection show an Opal-like chatoyancy, but all have distinctive and interesting dendritic moss patterns.
