Opal Globe

qpkarl suggested water added to the sand.

 

Sounded good.

 

So after clearing out a bunch of stuff around the house for the Termite Fairies, I gave it a try.

 

Turns out the sand is hydrophobic, but isopropal alcohol works well.

 

This was the first shot of three and had less delay. It reminds me of boulder opal.

 

Cheers.
