Australian Opal is one of the most rare of all precious gems, and far fewer opals are mined every year than diamonds, sapphires and emeralds. Australian Opals are many peoples passion – no other gemstone is as exciting as an opal. Even an extremely expensive diamond doesn’t have the lively displays of an opal, and it can very difficult to spot a fake diamond. Unlike diamonds, there is no way to convincingly fake an opal, and fakes are very easy to spot with minimal experience. There are just a handful of well known opal mines. South Australia is home to the Coober Pedy Opal Mine, the Mintabie Opal Mine and the Andamooka Opal Mine. New South Wales is home to the famous lightning ridge opal mine, and the smaller White Cliffs Opal Mine. Queensland is the home of the boulder opals, and is also home to the Quilpie Opal Mine and the Winton Opal Mine.
Australian Opal is characterised by a display of sparkling prismatic colours as the stone is moved through different light. It is immediately clear how valuable a single opal is, and top stones have a higher per carat value than perfect diamonds.
We can provide opals in bulk orders within particular specifications, as well as single stones and matched pairs to your exact requirements. We can also match opals for pendant, earing and ring sets.

We can provide certificates of authenticity for any opal valued at over £1000 RRP. All of our opals are sold with a 100% money back guarantee (on return on the opal) if they are found to be anything other than the type of opal you purchased from us.
