Rough Opal

What Is Rough Opal?


Rough  boulder opal, Boulder Opal, Black opal, black opal rough, opal, Lightning Ridge, black opal, black opal cut stones, opal salesRough Opal is opal in the form in which it comes directly from the mine. There are various types including black opal, white opal rough, and boulder opal rough.
When the tough laborious extraction of the opal from the mining site is completed, another stage begins-- the refinement of the stone into the beautiful opal gem.

The process of rough shaping, fine shaping, sanding, and final leather polishing, in combination with a patient mind, can transform the rough hewn rock into an object of true beauty... nature's own dazzling fireworks!

Many enthusiastic professionals and hobbyists have turned a handsome profit by purchasing low-cost rough stones from Opal Exchange and turning them into quality gems.
