Black opal stone have the most intensive electric colors that can dazzle out of all the worlds opals. The best quality is known as gem red multicolored Harlequin pattern N1 body tone, only found in one place in the world a town in the outback of the semi-arid region of Australia in this State of New South Wales, Sydney being the capital city. In the far North West of the state less than 100 km from the Queensland border and 11 hour drive from the capital Brisbane, this unique place known as the capital of the black opal stone industry the town is named Lightning Ridge, which sits on an ironstone slight elevated ridge that attracts lightning strikes surrounded by flat planes, where Australian wildlife kangaroos cockatoos and parrots domestic animals all roam freely over the semiarid region of the country, not rich farming and grazing land but under some areas can be laying their form many millions of years millions of dollars of gemstones.
There are many grades of this opal stone at lightning Ridge like the N1 to N9 black grey and white body tone, and even beautiful multicolor crystal opal. In other states of Australia you will find white and crystal, but no where in the world you will find gem grade A+ N1 N2 N3, there was a semi-black N4 N3 found in south Australian.
About the last five years the majority of crystal opal stones predominantly low grade and commercial grade has been discovered in the country of Ethiopia, amongst its crystal there is a brown body tone but unfortunately does not even come close to Australian black. The Ethiopia crystal can have beautiful high color bars making beautiful high dome cabochon cuts, unfortunately there colors are not electric intense fabulous colors like the Australian crystal which is so much more gorgeous.
There is not a lot of Australian black opal stone and crystal available on the market these days, fortunately Ethiopian crystal was discovered at the right time to supply the market, why there is a series slump in the Australian exploration and production as it is only every 30 to 40 years a big strike is discovered. So remember when pricing this gemstone from Ethiopia, if the crystal has intense colors, without any flaws-grazing then it can deserve serious payment like the equivalent Australian crystal opal.
