White Cliffs is famous for our opalised pineapples, there have only ever been between 300-500 found and the only place you can find them in the world is White Cliffs. Pineapples started life as Ikaite crystal clusters which form when the temperature is below 4 degrees celcius. When the ground temperature reaches 8 degrees the Ikaite pseudomorphs into Glendonite which is finally then replaced with precious opal. We also have pineapples that have a different crystal basis some of which could be gypsum and some are still unknown.
