Are you familiar with opals? If not let me give you an idea. Opal is a hydrated amorphous form of silica its water content may range from 3 to 21% by weight. Because of its amorphous character, it is classed as a mineraloid, unlike crystalline forms of silica, which are classed as minerals. Opals can be found in many colors and shape. Opals can be divided in two kinds according to it’s worth. These are common opals and Precious Opal.
Normal opals are more colorful and eye catching then the common one, that’s more of a single color. So here the question arises, what’s the biggest use of these opals? These are used in jewelry particularly in rings, necklace and bracelets. And the biggest source of opal is in Australia. Australian opal has often been cited as accounting for 95–97% of the world’s supply of precious opal.
And for me the biggest source of buying genuine Australian opal is Global Opals. They are the specialist in Solid Black Opal and Solid Crystal Opal from Lightning Ridge. All Opals they offer are mined on the Lightning Ridge Opal Fields. So we can’t question the quality and genuineness of these opals. And the range of opals they are offering is the other reason I go to them. From an opal that cost a few bucks to an opal that costs above $5000 they got all in their product range.
Apart from black opals they got large variety of other opals that includes semi black opals, light opals, crystal opal and even some nicely made opal based jewellery. So whether you are into opal business and looking for a wholesale deal or want to buy some opals for yourself, they got everything you are looking for.
