Lightning Ridge, fine quality Black Opal field

Here is some idea of  "How does BLACK OPAL FIELD look like".

The population is always "?", this isolated area is the only known place on earth where world-famous fine quality Black Opal is found.

In recent years, Black Opal is getting rarer and rarer, therefore opals from Lightning Ridge sold for record prices sometimes at more per carat than good quality diamond.
Australia now produces around 95 per cent of the world's opal supply, however, only less than 5 per cent of them would be considered as a black opal.
"For in them you shall see the living fire of ruby, the glorious purple of the amethyst, the sea-green of the emerald, all glittering together in an incredible mixture of light." by Plincy the Elder, Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher, 1st Century AD.
I always appreciate the beauty of Australian Black Opal and would like to share the "rainbow from down under" with opal lovers in all over the world...
Here is our offcial website, I hope you enjoy!!
