When rotated, the Opal displays always temporary spectacular colors. Opals are unique, no two Opals are ever the same. Because of its rarity, some pleasing quality Opals can command prices same to the best emeralds, rubies and diamonds. The opal mining fields of Australia are in the harsh outback where only the severe miners can make a living. The evidence that Australia used to have an inland sea is that many fossils of shells and fish bones have been found from inland of Australia. Fine marine sands rich in silica were deposited around the shoreline. Around 30 million years ago, lots of silica gel was released into a solution which occupied cracks in the rocks, nature’s intense heat and molding processes then hardened the gel and formed valuable Opals. The variation of colors arrive from the size of spheres. More uniformed spheres create more intense, brilliant and defined color. Opal is noncrystalline silica (similar to quartz), combined with water. Opal is not only one of the world's maximum pretty cherished gemstones, it is also one of the worlds rarest. In ancient times, Opal has been a favorable gem for imperials and royal families of European countries. One of the famous generals during the Roman Empire, Marcus Antonius was going to give a pretty opal to Cleopatra. But that stone was owned by Nonius, a Roman politician and he denied to sell the stone to Antonius. The Arabs believed that Opals fell from the sky and the Orientals referred to them as the anchor of hope. Established in 1980, Masterpiece Jewellery is one of the most honest jewelers in Sydney.
