Comments on this item: You may wonder how we can sell such a cute little pendant at such a cheap price that includes shipping and, in this case, a free chain as well. You might be tempted to think it’s a synthetic opal which most opals being offered online are.
Well to make it clear, this is a real opal originating either from the opal fields at Coober Pedy or Lightning Ridge, the home of the famous black opal. Then why is it so cheap you will want to know? The reason is that the opal has been set in a dark background which makes the color brighter and more dramatic, just like its extremely valuable cousin, the black opal.
Not everyone can afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a piece of jewelry, so opal triplets are an excellent way of getting a very similar effect at a very reasonable price, for an item that can still be called a natural non-synthetic gem.
