Kaleidoscopic colours. The captivating flash of rainbow colours or iridescence you can see in these opals has inspired appreciation and curiosity for centuries. The most highly prized examples, like these, show at least three intense colours. Black opals are considered the best by gemmologists. It is rare to find two opals that are alike. Tonnes of rock needs to be processed before a single fine opal is found.
