Australian Opal


We prefer Australian opals, especially those from Lightening Ridge, as we find them to be less delicate. But mostly when we think about opals we love the variety- that one of a kind fire color formation. Also, there’s an uncovering process. Rough opals are covered in a sediment so you are not typically sure what you have underneath. We try to cut them to maximize the fire and frame the fire color, almost like framing a picture.
