Opal? what are opals there gemstones in rings and jewellery is where you will see opals, this information is by the only producer Graham with the only Heritage listed opal mine in Australia.    Opals cater’s for all budgets semiprecious too precious, the word opal in dictionary’s will clearly explain opal is a gemstone, but today everything has changed like privacy and the word opal can come up on a search referring to many thing’s like an Australian card, and a name of a person. But all dictionary’s will define opal as consisting of many colour’s and are all unique individual stoned with so many different patterns and different strengths regarding play of colour and body tones, from clear crystal with colours with in the crystal an black body tone’s that has the strongest colour’s that can have electrifying colours.
