Product Features: 

  • The most distinctive aspect of opal is its play-of-color, which is a spectacular display of spectral hues that appear to dance and shift as the gemstone is moved. This effect happens because of light diffraction by small spheres or spaces inside the opal’s structure. Opals may display a variety of hues, including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and others, frequently in a captivating interplay. 
  • Transparency: Depending on the kind and quality of opal, it can be transparent, translucent, or opaque. Precious opals with color play are often transparent to opaque. 
  • Opals come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including: 
  • Precious Opal: This variety exhibits the most color play and is the most valuable. 
  • Common Opal: Common opal lacks color play and is often milky or pearly in appearance. 
  • Fire Opal: Fire opal is distinguished by its bright orange to reddish-orange body hue. 
  • Boulder Opal: Boulder opal occurs inside an ironstone or sandstone matrix and frequently exhibits a one-of-a-kind mix of hues and patterns. 
  • Black Opal: A valuable opal with a black body color that emphasizes the brilliance of the color play. 
  • Hardness: Opal is rather soft in comparison to other gemstones, with a Mohs hardness of 5.5 to 6. As a result, it is prone to scratching and chipping. 
  • Opals are found in a variety of countries across the world. Australia is a well-known supplier of high-quality opals such as black opals, white opals, and boulder opals. Ethiopia, Mexico, Brazil, and the United States are among the other suppliers. 
  • Opals are frequently used in jewelry, such as rings, earrings, necklaces, and pendants. They are often put in protective settings to prevent harm due to their fragile nature. 
  • Opals need careful care to keep their beauty and integrity. They are heat, chemical, and quick temperature changes sensitive, which can cause them to break or lose their color play. Opal jewelry should be cleaned with a gentle, wet cloth and should not be exposed to strong chemicals or ultrasonic cleaners.
