This new type of synthetic aurora opal doesn’t show a columnar pattern typical for opals grown by sedimentation. Thus, an orientation of the opals prior cutting is not necessary anymore.

Furthermore, in contrast to conventional impregnated synthetic opal the preparation method by homogeneous crystallization allows a significant lower silica content. This makes processing of Aurora opals much easier and this type of synthetic opal can be drilled, carved, sliced and cut by standard carbide tools.
