  • Scott Joseph Grant

    Opals are beautiful. Especially black opal. Goal in life is to learn how to find and polish these beauties and other gems 😍😍

  • Rami Chanel

    Opals are my birthstone and I got my first one on my 6th birthday. I was fascinated by the array of colors and I loved the smooth surface. This fascination led me to get my first gem encyclopedia (for children of course ^_^) and to start my own semi-prescious stone collection. After all these years, opals are still my favorite gemstone. I love how no two are exactly alike in either color or pattern. They are each uniquely beautiful.

  • Miranda G

    I love opals because it is the only stone that has a million sparkly colours and remind me of cosmic galaxies! So magical!

    Opal is my stone of birth. The gem that encompases all gems. It’s beauty is that of color being born. Of fire and water combined.

  • picard

    Opals have a mystical beauty like no other & the colors are elemental. My love for Opals is the reason I started making jewelry.

  • I love these Lightning Ridge Opals because even if one peak’s at you it’s luster and mystery pulls you deeper, and when they just open up to you the array of colors can bring gasps, and move with an inner life of their own,

  • Dale Hodder

    I love opal because they are (in my opinion) natures greatest masterpiece, whilst a product of fortuitous geological circumstance and anthropogenic craftsmanship.
