I was reading VGtaTM, and it mentions that if you mix powdered black opal with powdered orl and introduce it to an open flame it makes a powerful explosive. I was wondering, how much of both gems would need to be mixed? Since both are 1000gp is it the whole (1) It's the entirety of both gemstones.
Of course, with more (powdered and mixed), you can generate a bigger blast. I'd advise being a safe distance from the flame. Half a kingdom ought to do it.#Realmslore

Ooh, I just realised, could this work with the uncut version of these gems? So instead of getting 2000gp for the cut versions and then powdering them, could you get the uncut versions for ~200gp, and powder those and mix them for the same result? Yes!#Realmslore
