The black opal, for exceptional jewelry deeper!

There is a wide variety of opal stone around the world, which, depending on its origin, presents differences in color. Among them, theblack opal or Australian opal is certainly the rarest and most valuable. An opal is said to be black when the tone of the stone is very dark.

The name " opal " comes from the Sanskrit term "Upala" from the Brahmanic civilization in India, which means " precious stone ".

We talk about Australian opal when we talk about black opal because it is on this continent that we find this semi-precious stone, rare in this very dark hue.

The particularity of opal stones is that they contain small spheres of silica which are reflected in the form of flashes of various colors when the stone is exposed to natural light.

A black opal stone has the same characteristics as any other opal but what makes it so special, rare and unique is the color of its matrix which is much more opaque, dark and even very dark than the others.

Earrings, pendants, necklaces, rings, bracelets, the play of colors that the black opal presents can create all types of jewelry even if some precious metals are more suitable for the development of these natural stones.

Just as we like to work with dark stones such as Onyx, black spinel, obsidian, grey and black diamonds or black moonstone,black opal invites us to be creative, as its translucent aspect and the depth of its matrix allow us to stimulate our inspiration.

A property that we may also owe to the virtues conferred on it by gemology professionals who consider theblack opal as a gem that awakens the creative sense, imagination and originality.

TheAustralian black opal that we use for the creation of the jewelry pieces in our collections or for the custom jewelry that we offer to make for you, is above all for the character and originality that it brings to a piece of jewelry.
