Member: American Opal Society. ‘Unset opal’

This means that the stones are not set into jewelry. In other words they are cut and polished ready for setting

Description The stones are mainly a delicate green color. Would make an interesting shaped pendant with matching earrings.

These stones and their close cousin, white or milk opal are some of the best known opals in the world.

Because of the fact that crystal and white opal have been mined for centuries, if not for thousands of years.

European supplies came from the opal mines in Hungary which are all but mined out now.

The difference between crystal and white opal is that crystal is more translucent, in that you can actually see down deep into the stone.

White opal is opaque, the color being on the surface of the stone. Crystal opals are the more expensive variety.

crystal opal unset from coober pedy

Crystal opal is mainly from Coober Pedy but of course it is also found in most of the other opal fields including Lightning Ridge, Andamooka and the Queensland opal fields. Actually all Australian opal is similar in structure.

The various types are categorized by what they are associated with. If the crystal opal has black potch in the background, it’s black opal. If it has dark brown to black ironstone in the background it is black boulder opal. If it has darkness within itself it becomes black crystal.
