Black Opals are mined in Lightning Ridge, NSW, Australia which gives you the assurance that you are getting a gem that is secure and will not lose its color like so many stones from wet areas of the earth do. This particular stone has a more delicate crystal and translucent appearance which is totally fascinating.
These gems have had thousands of years to dry out and solidify in the Australian outback heat. The brilliant color comes in small veins throughout the mother stone which is brown ironstone.
The opal cutter uses diamond blades to extract the color and has to decide the direction of the clean-up process which is a very skillful time-consuming job.
These opals are not porous which means they will not suck water or moisture into them when exposed to dampness such as when washing your hands or taking a shower.
