Most fire opal is form Coober Pedy and makes good doublets especially
the shell s that are opalized and these are thin and make the brightest doublets

to block pattern and these are popular on swing bales as the pattern reflects
so good when wearing.

Calibrated designs can also be set in silver earrings with
cz s that are manmade diamonds to create more of a formal design.
