A solid Opal is a natural stone that, except for cutting and polishing , has not been altered in any way. Some of these lovely black opals may carry small inclusions, which in some cases, can enhance their beauty.
The beautiful, bright colours of Lightning Ridge black opal sit on a natural dark potch [common opal] back, which can range in colour from black through to grey.
Some of these gems may carry small sandpits in their back. Don't be put off by them, unless they're extreme, they don't devalue the stone and are often a hallmark of the genuine article.
A guide to selecting any stone, regardless of grade, is the quality of its brilliance, a full colour face and the way the colours move - particularly so with the rare pieces.
