How to set Crystal Opals
Crystal Opals are transparent by nature.
This means that if you hold the opal up to a light source (such as a ceiling light or the sun) you will be able to see the light pass thru the opal.
Crystal opals are ‘see-thru’ opals that do not contain any potch either inside of them or on the back of them.
Because of this, it is important to know how to set these beautiful treasures of the Earth to maximise their beauty.
A crystal opals best colour and brightness is shown when the light is trapped inside of the opal.
We recommend setting with a black or dark background. Enabling the light to only enter the opal thru its face or front side enhances the beauty of it. Using a closed in backing such as a bezel setting with iodised silver or oxidised (or lazered) gold will really help in showing off a crystal opals true beauty.
