Opal: Delicate beauty in a watery orb
from The New York Times
On a recent trip to this town in the state of Piauí, in "the middle of nowhere in the Brazilian opal fields," Jürgen Schütz, president of Emil Weis Opals, a dealer in Idar-Oberstein, Germany, struggled to send an e-mail dispatch. "For an unknown reason the computer deleted my first message, so I have to do it again," Schütz wrote, before recapitulating his point: "Diamonds you buy with your head or brain -- you can easily compare the certificates with each other -- but opal you have to choose with your heart and your soul."
