Rough Loose Opals
Opals are a very popular type of gem that is frequently used in rings, necklaces, earrings and other types of jewellery. They are so popular because of their bright, iridescent colours. Rough loose opals are opals that have not been cut. This means they can be cut to fit specific jewellery settings or they can be used in their rough state to create pieces that highlight the natural beauty of the stone. There are many different types of rough loose opals available, each with its own unique characteristics.
Rough Loose Black Opals
Rough loose black opals typically have a rich, dark colour. Some of them are actually black and others feature shades of dark blue or green. These opals typically go well with silver, titanium and stainless steel jewellery components.
Rough Loose White Opals
Rough loose white opals have a very pale tone. Some of them are pure white with a soft milky appearance. Others have this white background with light colours presented against it. These opals commonly feature pastel shades of pink, orange and blue. White opals are one of the rarer types of opals which makes them one of the more valuable types.
Rough Loose Fire Opals
Fire opals get their name from their bright fiery colours, and you can find natural rough loose fire opals with many different colour schemes. They feature a translucent background, with various bright shades of yellow, orange and red. Some of them also feature slight tints of green or blue.
Rough Loose Boulder Opals
Rough loose boulder opals are very distincitve because they feature a layer of solid brown ironstone on the back of each opal.

On top of the brown ironstone background, these opals have an array of colours including shades of green, blue and yellow.
