Australian Opal Schmuck

Australian Opal Schmuck is world famous for the following reasons. Gut, Wir sagen nicht, dass es irgendwie anders oder kreativer als Schmuck aus einem anderen Land in irgendeiner Weise. But what we ARE saying is when jewellers feature that amazing gemstone OPAL in their designs, something really special starts to happen.

Sie sehen, the world has been accustomed to a particular “look” in stone set jewelry (jewellery-English spelling), and that ‘look’ is often centered around popular faceted gems such as diamonds, Saphiren, and rubies. Natürlich, gibt es viele andere nicht-facettierten Steinen (called cabochons, oder kuppelförmige Steine)

As a rule, Edelsteine, die nicht transparent oder durchscheinend sind, mit einer gewölbten Oberseite geschnitten, weil sie auf der Durchbiegung und Beugung von Licht opak und nicht angewiesen sind, einen Glanz zu erzeugen,, apart perhaps from opaque red rubies and sapphires which sometimes feature a light reflection like a ‘star.’

Hence the term ‘star sapphires’ or ‘star rubies.’ There are of course shell based gemstones called ‘ammonites‘ which in some way are reminiscent of the opal change of color.

Einzigartige Australian Opal Schmuck

Australian opal (and for that matter, opal from wherever it is found internationally) ist totally unique in the world of gemstones. einige Opale, natürlich, sind wie andere cabochon gems opak. Notably Coober Pedy milk or white opal which does have a beautiful change of color but it is mainly on the surface of the stone.

Jedoch, Kristall-Opal (named for its appearance rather than its technical i.d.) can be slightly translucent, allowing the eye to look deep into the gem and be tantalized by colors that come and go and change from one color to another as the stone is rotated.

Summary of Australian Opal Jewelry

What do we mean by ‘unique?’

Some opals are similar to others but none are exactly the same and if you add black and boulder opals into the equation, the exclusivity of these gemstones expands into another realm which the images on opalmine.com well illustrate.
