Black Opal Pendant Description and Style of pendant:

The center stone has been set with a plain bezel. They are all unique, and the imaginative designs bring out the beauty in these magnificent pieces.

The style of these pendants was inspired by a mixture of shapes and patterns of the Australian outback, combined with Italian imagination and creativity. A work of art that will endure for a very long time.

Boulder opal from Winton Queensland. Stones like this are becoming rarer as the opal fields are running out.

The price of Opal – unlike many gemstones is influenced by supply and demand – not by international cartels who agree on price increases.

Hence – opal is destined to go up in value as the supply becomes more restricted which is happening at present.

The color of these stones is completely natural – in contrast to diamonds [for example] which depend on man-made facets to reflect the spectrum colors. Graceful is a good way of describing this lovely pendant – enhanced with 1 small diamond.

Black Opals can be found in most of the Australian opal fields but the most internationally recognized are those from Lightning Ridge.

About black opal

Please take a look here so that you can get an idea about where this delightful black opal comes from.

Black opals have been mined in this area since the middle of the 19th century.

Originally the field was discovered by people who were not looking for opal. They were most likely Drovers (this term applies to Sheep-men in Australia)

They discovered small bright-colored stones in an area where there was a lot of Lightning. Hence the name Lightning Ridge.

At the time, no one knew if these stones were valuable but the appeal was amazing and it wasn’t long before miners started to go to this area, and eventually, parcels of the new stones were shown in London and other parts of the world.

I believe the first parcel sold for a mere ten shillings or so (about one dollar) Steadily this price kept going up until in recent years the value has got out of hand.

Some stones selling for up to $10,000 and more PER CARAT. (a carat stone is about the size of a small fingernail)
