If you happen to be new to the world of opals then please know this: only about 10% of all mined opal is gem grade opal with the rest being colorless potch. If you have ever seen an opal that looked dull with almost no color inside of it then you saw a very low quality opal. When you acquire an opal from me you are getting an opal that has been hand-selected for its unique characteristics by an opal expert who spends nearly all of his time working with opals.Opals are exceptionally rare and beautiful gemstones. They have fire inside of them that flashes and rolls as you move them around. To me, it seems that each opal has energy trapped inside of it; almost like an eternal sunset. As the colors flash and roll, its almost as if the opal is telling a story.
So, as you look at the opal, listen to it. About My Pictures and Videos. When you hold an opal in your hand, it should look better in your hand than the images used to show it - not the other way around. It is never my intention to portray an opal better in my images than it appears in real life.
The images you see are accurate to the best of my digital limitations. Generally, with the opal in hand, you will see higher luster with greater depth and liveliness than the images portray. You should know that it is impossible to express the exact nature of an opal in images. Many opals look different under different lighting conditions. Make sure to look at your opal with the sun at your back and coming over your shoulder.
Not all opals look best in full sunlight. Some opals look better with less light and some opals look drastically different on cloudy days or in the morning light.
