Physical - Some confusion surrounds the name of this stone. Merlinite is actually a common modern name, and not a mineral type, the stones make up is a mix of agates, dendrite and, or opalised  agate depending on the quality of the mineral.  You can call the stone Dendritic Opal if the stone as a glassy (opal like appearance) and dendritic (moss like / tree like patterns)  as our two examples here have, if the stone is more solid in appearance then stone is Dendritic Agate. Neither are true OPALs!
