Opalized dinosaur vertebra. Opal forms in cavities within rocks. If a cavity has formed because a bone, shell or pinecone was buried in the sand or clay that later became the rock, and conditions are right for opal formation, then the opal forms a fossil replica of the original object that was buried

I’m now imagining I have an opal skeleton. And with that I go to bed.
Feeling just awful today. I’m going to moan here so my boss doesn’t see me groan on FB. After a weekend full of so much fun and learning I think my body has had it. I’ve been eating in a way that does NOT make my body happy. Soooo away go the carbs for the most part, I’m going to miss you apples but you make me crazy.
