time is opal



a distinct and famous marker inside the grand central terminal in new york city is the elegant brass clock in the middle of its main concourse which sits atop of its main information booth. this is easily a favorite meeting place of tourists and transient travelers who go through this transportation hub.

each of the four faces of the clock is made of opal, estimated by sotheby's and christie's to be worth between $10 to $20 million. that's another way of saying that "time is gold!"
