About My Pictures and Videos

I want you to have a very good idea of what you are buying before you buy it. I don't do any editing to my images other than cropping to size. The images that you see are accurate to the best of my ability but there is more color and life in the opals than I capture in my images. So, the opals will be better in hand.

If you are new to opals then you should know that it is impossible to capture the exact nature of an opal in images. Many opals look different under different lighting conditions. Make sure to look at your opal with the sun at your back and coming over your shoulder. Not all opals look best in full sunlight. Some opals look better with less light. I hope you have fun exploring the wonderful world of opal. 


A note about my opals: My opals are acquired from the best most direct sources possible. I personally sift and sort through thousands of carats of opals to bring you the best gems that stand-out from the rest. All opals are unique – that is why we love them so much. Uniqueness is matter of degree. The opals you see here are unique to a very high degree.
