Opal formed stones of hydrated silica and Science has determined specific gravity 1.98 – 2.20 with refractive Index 1.44 – 1.46 but the hardness varies up to about 6.5. The best quality opal formed by far comes from the capital of the State of NSW Australia, the most amazing naturally gemstone but expensive only discovered around the town of Lightning Ridge. But only a small percentage of this black opal group of opals discovered will make the grade N1 – N2, this is the most amazing bodytone recognise worldwide as the best quality grade opal. Also the most stable opal by far under all climatic conditions unlike Ethiopian opal very porous, and bolder stones can have amazing colour but is nowhere as stable as black opal with good amazing colours, and of course the patterns are the best by far of all the opals including Crystal opal white semi black and bolder opal. These types of opal all have floors that would naturally be there, but under extreme conditions very hot conditions or the opposite very cold conditions problems will occur, often just very fine faults that you cannot see with the naked eye, can expand and fracture overtime plus colours can sometimes not stable like black opal, and gray colour amongst the other colours can often expand with time and ageing, where 100% good quality very dense heavy black opals you’re never have this problem.

But bottom line your choice the most important and this is truly up to the eye of the beholder what bodytone each person prefers along with their favourite arrange of colours.   Video is about how to make a opal ring.     Back to the formation of opals Scientific theory small changes...

Crafted jewellery opal ring handmade. Crafted jewellery with solid Australian natural opal gemstones, guaranteed 100% money back if the opals are ever found otherwise not to be an Australian opal. Gold these days seems to be a great investment always going up and opals and gemstones so you can resell for profit by many ways, including today’s World Wide Web on eBay or Alibaba website, there are many different gold sites and jewellery sites. There always and will still be the traditional sale methods for crafted jewellery at boutiques jewellery shops, and gem and jewellery trade shows. Many good quality crafted jewellery and gemstones are handed down to love once and often later in life if people have financial difficulties, this type of inheritance can help your next of kin get out of the problem. Currency money regardless of what country we are talking about seems to be up and down and mostly down a lot more these days, American dollar problems and bonds and of course bit coins are cider coins so do they have any true value maybe buying a coffee, but if you lose your password you lose your asset in bit coins. But gold jewellery with a beautiful opal and diamond are solid assets as rain and time will never damage gold or silver or sapphires or a beautiful ruby etc.   Crafted jewellery opal ring custom-made.   Cleaning method if the stone is not a solid stone like a doublet opal which is a natural thin layer of Crystal opal glued on to a darker background to either strengthen or inhands and make the colours more intense and beautiful. To avoid damaging the glue never use jewellery cleaning chemicals or water on the opal, and never soke opal rings or jewellery items either in solution.  Best method for crafted jewellery with opals, is using a cotton bud you can apply chemicals to the gold or the silver but never to the stone, leave chemical on jewellery 15 minutes about then wipe the chemical off, or if you used soapy water with a clean tissue dry and clean the ring from all detergent and stains. Then proceed with a new and cleaner tissue and go through the procedure again, after this make sure you have a very clean cloth and polish the jewellery and you are done.
But now for the opal this time only clean the gemstone by fogging the opal with your breath and immediately with new very clean tissue that came out of the packet only polishing the opal, repeat a few times with cleaner new tissue every time.
Always work close to the ground and always make sure there is a rug under wear you are working so if you drop the crafted opal jewellery or a crafted opal ring, you will not damage the opal gemstone on the hard floor.   Crafted jewellery opal...

BlackOpal ring jewellery handmade opal ring.   BlackOpal ring possibly rarest gemstones on earth and black opals are in the top very rare minerals, there is a budget opal semiprecious and gem predominantly quality gemstone also that is one of the most expensive gemstones in the world. BlackOpal ring unfortunately this unique industry is facing a severe downsize and in the very near future there will be no supplies of good quality Australian black opals. The full story hear recently Graham was talking to many professional jewellers and shop owners that travel around the world, that purchase their gemstones at jewellery exhibitions that showcase rough and uncut material, but predominantly semiprecious and precious cut and polished gemstones. Also the latest jewellery designs are on display at all international jewellery shows, at Bangkok and Hong Kong and USA they all told Graham they rarely see Australian blackOpal rings any more. BlackOpal Ring Jewellery. BlackOpal ring jewellery from Australia has to compete with the low grade opals from the Country of Ethiopian, this opal rush strike of gemstones discovered in a very poor third world country in one of the poorest countries in Africa . Africa with no or very little environmental and safety standards like Australian government regulated including workplace and safety on labour. Indian multinational jewellery and gemstone factory owners travel to Ethiopia and purchase most of the uncut rough opals, virtually no environmental checks and balances in India also, factories with very cheap underpaid lower cast people cutting gemstones. India has lots of corruption the industry and jewellery business in Bangkok flooded with India cut opals, as the Indian manufacturers are taking over the industry in these countries. Graham thinks the Australian industry is slowly being destroyed because first world countries like Australia, Japan Singapore and many Scandinavian and western European countries have regulations such as environmental laws are very strong with first world safety and workplace regulations practices very strong. Australian black opal mining regulations are possibly the toughest in the world because small time exploration prospectors and primary producers are basically gambling thousands of dollars just to be allowed to start opal mining, State government payments cost going up all the time before you even start. About 95% of people will not make one dollar with a 50 x 50 m piece of government mining lease in the desert. Farmers can never make money off a 50 x 50 m piece of dirt, but miners we’ll keep the towns alive, miners go bankrupt even after 2 years expiration by then costs are in the tens of thousands of dollars all spent in town. So one-day shortly not even the government will make any money if something is not done quickly about the Australian black opals supply, and possibly many Australian opal mining towns will become ghost towns, common sense offices that regulate the industry need to...

Opal Mine Industry update. Opal mine under current transitional arrangements, designated ancillary mining activities (AMAs) that were commenced or constructed before 15 November 2010 are exempt from needing to have an authorisation under the Mining Act 1992 (the Mining Act) until. Opal mine as you may be aware, in September 2017 the Division of Resources and Geoscience, Department of Planning and Environment (the Division) sought nominations from industry of communal mullock stockpiles (communal stockpiles) that may be suitable to be included in an extension to the transitional arrangements. Feedback was also sought from targeted landholder and community stakeholders. The Division received 281 submissions and 120 telephone enquiries. Extension of transitional arrangements for communal stockpiles. Opal Mine Lightning Ridge opal mine Australia. The use of communal stockpiles is important to reduce the environmental footprint of opal mining and the risk of random and/or illegal mullock stockpiling. At the same time, communal stockpiles represent a rehabilitation liability and need to be managed to be safe and stable. The current transitional arrangements regarding the use of 46 nominated communal stockpiles in the Lightning Ridge and White Cliffs mineral claims districts have been extended until15 November 2019. The extension applies to communal stockpiles that existed before 15 November 2010 and have been continuously used since that time. This will allow a long-term governance approach for communal stockpiles to be developed in consultation with industry, landholders and the community. Management of communal stockpiles including rehabilitation will be considered as part of this process. Opal Mine Australian State Heritage opal mine. Opal miners who are not authorised to stockpile mullock can continue to use the stockpiles covered by the extension without an authorisation until 15 November 2019. After this time all mullock stockpiles will need to be covered by an appropriate authorisation under the Mining Act. The extension of the transitional arrangements does not change opal miners’ responsibilities to comply with other requirements under the Mining Act or other legislation. In particular, opal miners will still need to have a landholder’s permission to access a communal stockpile on their land. Importantly, the extension of the transitional arrangements only applies to the use of communal stockpiles that are listed. Before using a communal stockpile, opal miners are strongly advised to check whether it is exempt from needing to have an authorisation, or risk being in breach of the Mining Act. A list of the communal stockpiles the extension applies to, maps showing the location of these communal stockpiles and a set of frequently asked questions can be found on our website. I look forward to your ongoing support to ensure the use and management of communal stockpiles achieves positive outcomes for industry, landholders and the environment.

Opal mining information for the Australia Industry around Lightning Ridge.     I am writing to inform you of recent changes to the regulation of ancillary mining activities and a proposed extension of the transitional arrangements for communal mullock dumps. Ancillary Mining Activities (AMAs) AMAs are activities that are ancillary to, or support, mining operations such as opal puddling or the stockpiling of mullock. These activities were previously referred to as mining purposes. Recent changes to the framework for regulating AMAs came into effect on 27 June 2017 to clarify its operation and scope. The changes provide a transition period for AMAs established prior to 15 November 2010. Miners have until 14 November 2017 to seek authorisation through a mining lease or mineral claim, otherwise they will be in contravention of the Mining Act 1992. Communal Mullock Dumps In some areas, opal mining mullock is stockpiled in communal areas (known as ‘communal mullock dumps’). Communal mullock dumps are designated AMAs under the Mining Act 1992. The Department of Planning and Environment recognises that many titleholders are utilising communal mullock dumps to support their mining operations. The department is currently considering an extension to the transitional period for up to two years for communal mullock dumps that were established prior to 15 November 2010. The proposed extension will enable the department and miners to work together to ensure positive outcomes for industry, the community and the environment. Only communal mullock dumps that are nominated to the department and meet the requirements will benefit from the extension to the transitional period. How you can help We would like to hear from you about which communal mullock dumps should be included in the extended transitional period (provided they meet the criteria identified in the nomination form).   Opal mining information for the Australia Industry around Lightning Ridge.   A set of frequently asked questions is available on our website.
