Australian Opal

Opal is Australia’s national gemstone, and we are delighted to say that Australia produces more than 95% of the world’s valuable gem opal. Opal is a gem made up of a hydrated amorphous form of silica (SiO2.nH20) produced spontaneously millions of years ago. Opal is a solid gemstone crystallized from chemical silicon dioxide and has no clearly defined shape or form. Opals are divided into two categories: valuable and common. The “play of color” phenomenon occurs in precious, costly opal. The diffraction of white light traveling over and through the carefully placed silica spheres within an opal’s microstructure produces the optical phenomena. The distinctive properties of opal are also influenced by refraction and internal reflection.

In essence, an opal’s color variations are determined by the size and arrangement of these silica spheres and their transparency. Clear through to white, grey, black, and brown body tones, and a color play of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, pink, green, and purple. Due to its uniqueness and dramatic visual effect, the red play of color on a black body tone is the most precious and sought-after combination of these colors. Australia, notably Lightning Ridge, produces high-quality “Red on Black.”
