WHAT IS A DOUBLET ?
Doublets consist of two layers adhered together with glue: A thin slice of opal (normally transparent crystal ). The thickness of the opal in a doublet can vary, however it is generally thicker than the opal found in a triplet. A black backing which is made of either black glass, natural black potch (common opal), hard plastic or natural brown ironstone Note .we have taken the picture with a Nikon coolpix 4500 camera which captures a purple tone in the stone which our eyes cant see.This is a predominate blue stone.
