Opals

The term "Opal" comes from the Greek word "Opallos" which means "see a change of colour". Like all natural gemstones the earth produces, each Australian Opal is very unique, offering many different varieties of colour, shape and size. When an opal is rotated, the play of changing colour is incredible and the most superior quality Opals can command prices similar to the finest emeralds, rubies and diamonds.

opals

Technically, the opal is non-crystalline silica, in a rigid gel form, that contains approximately 5% to 9% water. On the Mohs Scale of Hardness, a Diamond rates a 10, the Opal, is a gem that rates approx 5.5 to 6.5, and so like pearls (which rate 3 - 4) care needs to be taken when wearing Opals as jewellery.
