Opals have a huge range of qualities and commercial grades. All opals are priced to an industry standard and it is this standard that dictates that an opal must be perfect to command a high price.. Ok. most opals that are mined are not in the commercially perfect category, but are no less beautiful! In fact, I believe some of these opals are even more beautiful than their more expensive relatives.
We have a huge range of opals in the 'up to $500' catagory. Not all are displayed on this site, so if you do not see what you like, please feel free to email me and ask for pictures of opals in your price range and colour preference.
