Australian Black Opals

Black Opals are the rarest opals in the world and the most valued. Their darker body tone brings brightness to the play of colour. They also come in wide range of patterns, some being extremely rare.  Learn more about black opals.

Australian Black Opals are gemstones mined in an area called Lightning Ridge in NSW. Robert Short, the Opal Shop owner frequently visits this area to renew our available stock.
