These unclassified opal stones have a natural crack along the opal face. The stone has split in two along a natural fissure. They have not been cut or polished. These rough pairs are for experts or beginners to cut and polish themselves, or to collect and use as-is. perfect for pieces that require a matching pair, like earrings or bracelets.
“Pairs are a lot rarer than single stones resulting in higher price values.”
With such a long history and many collectors holding onto pieces either for sentimental or economic value, some of the opals we offer we cannot link to a mine or region. Therefore we offer them to you with the understanding that they could come from anywhere.
At the Opal Shop, we have a diverse range of unclassified pieces from across Australia. We almost always have a video as well as a verbal and written description of the items. Our price and descriptions are as fair and understandable as possible, decided by theOpal Shop Owner, expert and buyer of 20 years.
