Our extensive knowledge and high skill for cutting opal is what allows us to bring out the magnificent bright and vibrant colours of our ODF crystal opals.
Crystal opals are transparent, because there is less sand impurity in the layers of silica. They can be either ‘dark’ or ‘light’, and have magnificent bright and vibrant colours. If you can see through the opal, generally it will classify as a crystal opal. Crystal opals can display any spectrum of colour and are found in South Australia and New South Wales such as, Coober Pedy, Andamooka and Lightning Ridge.
