Opals are excellent pieces of jewelry of gemstones because of its visual appeal, color and extraordinary beauty. Some stones are very rare opal – A fact that makes them incredibly expensive. Throughout history, these very specific and tender stones have received a bad reputation, mainly due to superstition and / or ignorance, but now as popular as a gemstone can be. Its main virtue seems to be its wonderful color, which comes from the unusual ability of interference of light. If you are looking for some opal jewelry purchase, you should keep in mind that gem quality opal can cost as much as diamonds more expensive emeralds and sapphires.

This should not discourage, however, since there are opals that are beautiful and relatively inexpensive, such as white opals. In contrast with them, as we said black opals can be quite expensive, but keep in mind that they are not really black, with darker shades only when compared with white opal stones.

An opal doublet is a slice very fine real opals stuck in a dark support. This support is usually another type of stone, opal, onyx or agate, but not, for example. Triplet opals occur in the same way, apart the addition of glass covered clear, made usually of transparent quartz. Both types of precious stones are easy to detect manipulated, and in fact can be distinguished of the original. However, do not just walk away and discard such opals, can be an affordable, and can still offer some of the glamor and splendor of precious stones more expensive.

The alternative is, of course, to try to produce synthetic opals and this is exactly what has happened in recent decades. The lab created opal stones are very difficult to detect, especially if they are not specialists. May be more or less equivalent to the land-mined opal. Also categories, as discussed above, there are some types of calculations that can simulate the look of land mined opals.
