Variance Objects | Australian Opal Studs
We prefer Australian opals, especially those from Lightening Ridge, as we find them to be less delicate. But mostly when we think about opals we love the variety- that one of a kind fire color formation. Also, there’s an uncovering process. Rough opals are covered in a sediment so you are not typically sure what you have underneath. We try to cut them to maximize the fire and frame the fire color, almost like framing a picture.
