What is a Triplet Opal?
A triplet opal demonstrates and even more stark and magnified color than a doublet at times. It has been found that the thinner the opal is, the brighter and more stark the foreground color. The only problem is that if the opal is too thin it is not safe and can be easily damaged, particularly in the jewelry manufacturing process where the closing of jewelry claws can easily damage the edge of the opal. Hence it was discovered that by attaching a clear crystal cap to the stone, the opal is protected and a very pleasing high dome is achieved. Hence, the term triplet which is a combination of a dark background, the precious opal attached the same as a doublet but with a clear cap fitted. Triplets are one of the most popular forms of opal again because they look just like very expensive black opals at a very reasonable price.
