THESE ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR CUTTING. PLEASE SEE OUR 4A OPALS FOR CUTTING ROUGH.
This is A grade opal that is hand selected to ensure that every piece has flash. We do not import any second grade opal without flash due to new export laws in Ethiopia that make it cost prohibitive to export anything of lower quality. We only buy opal with play of color.
This stock photo listing is our most popular because it is cost effective. It consists of 5 or 25 grams of small sized stones. This size is generally too small to cut or to put into jewelry as a raw piece, although some customers do make small jewelry with this listing. We buy this in huge quantity and we keep low margins on it to ensure that anyone who is interested in flashy opal has an entry point that they can afford.
We will select the opals you will receive. If you would like specific pieces, please search our shop where we have a large selection of individually photographed opals.
For larger and higher quality opals, please search our shop for the listing E0216.
For cutting grade opals, please search our shop for 4A opals.

This listing uses professional photography that samples our collection. YOU WILL RECEIVE SIMILAR STONES, BUT NOT THE EXACT STONES IN THESE PHOTOS. Each stone is unique and beautiful so please expect slight variations in color, texture, and size. Please add a note to your order with any specific requests and we will do our best to fill it from the stock available.
Some listings have multiple sizes. Please refer to the size ranges and note whether they are in inches or centimeters. 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters. Macro photography is used to show detail but can make items appear larger than their actual size. The ruler photo shows possible variations of the size and quantity you will receive.
