Australian Black Opals are amoung the rarest kinds of opal, mined at Lightning Ridge New South Wales, they are often formed within a host structure of manganese.
These precious gemstones recieve thier title for possessing a darker,
often almost black body tone colouration compared to the other types of solid opal.
The darker body tone range of the black opal's host structure often affords the gemstone a much higher colour contrast and brightness, allowing the gem's colour to be vividly seen.
