More about our created Opals
The physical and optical properties of our unique cultured opals are almost identical to those of natural opal. The main difference is that our opals have been impregnated with an extremely hard polymer which permanently binds the opal silica spheres together. The resulting opal is 80-90% pure opal silica, just like a natural opal and with a chemical composition that's almost the same. Our opals exhibit a play of colour and vibrancy only seen in the most prized of precious opals. These vivid flashes of colour are not easily found in naturally occurring opals as it is so rare and consequently usually very expensive. Our own cultured opals are unique and have a vibrant play of colour that is almost indistinguishable from natural opal, however they are far more affordable and look fabulous.

The treatment of our cultured opals results in the advantage of generally being stronger and more stable than natural opals, making it less vulnerable to cracking or drying. Unlike others, our unique cultured opal is a form of solid opal and should not be confused with 'doublets', 'triplets', 'opalite', 'reconstituted' opal or other cheap imitations.

Comparison of Chemical Composition:
Natural Opal: SiO2.nH2O
Cultured Opal: SiO2.nH2O+resin
