More About Black Opals
Australian black opals originate in Lightning Ridge and have a black body colour with very little opalescence. They are considered to be the most desirable of all opals. The black or dark grey background allows the navy blues, greens, oranges and reds to stand out in contrast, making the play of colour that much more vibrant. Our created black opals resemble those from Lightning Ridge at a fraction of the price.
