Australian Opal

Australian Opals enjoy a well deserved top position on the opal market. The "Down Under" provides a continuous stream of gems since their discovery in XIX century. The quality, range and strength of colours is so good, that they were thought to be fakes when first brought to Europe. There are virtually all types of opal mined in Australia: Black Opal- almost exclusive to the area of Lightning Ridge, White Opal and Crystal Opal- found everywhere but mostly known to come from Coober Pedy region, Boulder Opal- another Aussie speciality from Queensland, Matrix Opal- its most famous source being the fields of Andamooka. Australia is the source of almost 100% of black opals in the world- the most expensive and beautiful opal variety. There are also many Opal Fossils of flora and fauna that inhabited this land a 100 million years ago. This store category is further subdivided into black, white,crystal and boulder opal sections in the main menu on top of the page.
