What is a dark opal in comparison to a black opal?
Dark opals are of the same family as black. Black opals can be pitch black in the background. Other times of varying shades of grey.
This stone leans in the direction of crystal opal because it’s background is a lighter shade.
It is also a free form as opposed to a standard oval, rectangle or square which gives it greater design potential.
