NATURAL OPAL VS LAB CREATED OPALS ✦
Natural Opals: In its natural form, opal consists of closely packed aggregate spheres of silica, and water in varying amounts up to 15%. These spheres are arranged in a series of layers allowing light to pass through, defracting at specific points creating the play of colors that attracts us to these gemstones. The larger the spheres, the more vibrant the colors produced. Referred to as “common opals”, are those which lack the colored sparkle of the “precious opals“, though both are used in jewelry. Lab Created Opals have found their rightful place in the World Gem Market.
Synthetic Opal: is created in a Lab, but its chemical, optical, and physical properties are identical to that of a naturally occurring opal. Simulated Opal: is also created in a Lab, and is optically identical to natural Opal, but does not have the same physical and chemical characteristics. ALL varieties are quite beautiful! The simulated/synthetics are much hardier than their naturally occurring cousins, and are not as sensitive to temperature change, drying out, or cracking. They can be, however, as expensive as the natural Opal, due to the long growing process (up to 2 years!). So, unless you are buying for investment purposes, find the stone you LOVE, and don’t worry too much about the "how" of its creation. Enjoy it simply for the pleasure it brings!
