Australian Black Opal

Black Opal

Australian black opal is highly prized, it is the most rare, most valuable opal. It is called black opal because it has a dark grey to black background.

The main source of this radiant gem are Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, and Mintabie, South Australia. Black opal is also very rarely found in Coober Pedy, and Jundah, Queensland.

Black opal is the most expensive of all opal. Due to the darkness of the black base colour it makes the other colours stand out. The colours are often bright and strong.

Most black opal comes from Lightning ridge in New South Wales, black opal is found in the South Australian fields, Mintabie, Lambina and to a far lesser extent Coober Pedy as well but the majority of the world's Black opal is mined in the Ridge (Lightning Ridge).
