Appearance and Characteristics of Opal:
The opal is said to be over 60 million years old but this is questionable. The more recent analysis seems to indicate that opal can develop in a relatively short period of time but whatever is the case, Australian opals are sought after because of their reputation of being secure with dynamic flashes of color set against a dark background. Hence the term ‘black’ or ‘dark’ opal. Until black opal was discovered in Australia, the world had only seen white or light colored opal.
Welcome to Opalmine-opal jewelry-Opalescence
One of the unique characteristics of the stone is its opalescence. The stone has a rainbow-like iridescence that changes according to the angle of observation. The stone possesses the ability to reflect and refract particular wavelengths of light. This play of color really makes opal jewelry come alive! There are some beautiful gemstones in the world but the opal has the unique characteristic of being able to change colors as it is moved.
Australian opal does not fade in color when put in water so you can guarantee that its beauty will remain.
