More than 95% of the world's opal is mined in Australia.

When valuing opals the degree of brightness and colour are vital. Dominant colours have a value in the order of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Like diamonds and other gems, opals are measured by carat weight.

No two opals are identical. As each opal is unique you will find some appeal to you personally more than others. Choosing an opal should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience; the opal you choose will be a permanent memento of your visit to Australia.

Choose an opal you love from a store you can trust.
