ABOUT THE OPALS

A detailed information about qualities, natural formations, play of colors and prices in opals is immense and there are huge variations that can not be summarized on a page. Here I will only expose some small details.

Colors range from colorless to milky white, gray and semi-black to black, and a wealth of vivid colors including red, orange, yellow and blue. The depth and richness of color is reflected in pricing.

Play of Color
A phenomenon unique to opals, consisting of multiple color flashes within the stone that change depending on the angle from which the stone is viewed.
The density, intensity and distribution of these color flashes are determining value factors.

Transparency:
Opals are considered transparent when another object placed on the opposite side can be viewed through the stone; translucent, defined as having the ability to allow diffused light to pass through the entire gem; or opaque, meaning light does not penetrate the stone.

 

types of Australian opals
THE MOST POPULAR AND PRICED OPALOS ARE THE BLACK OPALS
Also the white opals are very popular and vendible because they are more affordable compared with the black opals; White opals can be milky white and semitransparent, which is why they are normally displayed on dark or black surfaces. Other very popular currently are the crystalline opals that are transparent but beautiful and they definitely have to be displayed on black surfaces to appreciate their colors.
 
Potch in Australian opals
WHAT IS POTCH? POTCH IS WHAT PRECIOUS OPAL IS FORMED ON. IT CAN BE GREY, BLACK OR EVEN WHITE IN COLOR.
The majority of common opal mined is called Potch, so it is basically common opal with no color. Potch is a hydrated amorphous form of silica and is known as a mineraloid. It is not classed as a mineral. Opal color is formed in the internal structures of precious Opal. Precious Opal will diffract light creating a spectrum of colors whereas potch has no diffraction and no opal color.
 
Boulder Australian opals
BOULDER OPALS ARE A UNIQUE STONES UNLIKE ANY OTHER
Opal is a material that forms within the cracks and crevices of different types of rocks. Often, the veins of opal within a rock are thin and winding. Quite often the opal formation is not quite big enough for a stone of its own, though it is still dazzlingly beautiful within the rock. At some point, someone had the good sense to realize that the rock and opal together can make a beautiful stone, which is precisely what boulder opals are.
 

 

 

Types of Opals:
Common Opal:
Also termed potch opals, this is usually an opaque opal exhibiting a milky but lustrous solid body color without any play of color.
Precious Opal:
Flashes of bright iridescent color or play of color is clearly evident within the opal. Precious opals usually have a white or cream body color.
