Red Brown Opal Mosaics

Another opalescence mutation we carry and why you may ask? Simply because the eumelanin now turn into a light bluish grey tone. Visibly you can see the tones of greys completely different from the black version being that this is lighter than the Black Opal. This is the first mutation in the Brown Mutation that doesn't need the phaeomelanin in them and will actually hinder them rather than normally help them. This is what makes this specific mutation unique but it is also required to make sure that all Opal mutations are balanced out as well meaning breeding back to back Opals will eventually darken the mutation rather adding eumelanin and lowering the opalescence. It is indeed the brightest Opal out of the bunch. This is what makes this mutation special and why they are kept in the aviary.
