Australian Black Opals - mined in Lightning Ridge, New South Wales are famed for thier bright high-contrast play-of-colour that thier host rock of manganese affords them.
Named due to the dark body tone that its host rock provides, black opal has a dark body tone ranging from shades of dark grey to almost completely black. These opals more than any other are able to provide a vibrant and spectacular play-of-colour due to the high contrast the opal's colour pattern has against its hosting rock.
Here we display our selection of Australian black opal earrings, set in precious metals ranging from serling silver through to white gold and platinum.
