Product Description

A cabochon of synthetic Opal created by Kyocera of Japan.

A scintillating display of opalescent play of colour is visible against a white background in this solid imitation Opal

Gems of this type are sometimes referred to as 'synthetic' opal but while chemically similar, they do not share the same physical properties as natural material and are composed of a silica lattice, similar in structure to natural Opal, which has been polymer-impregnated. The polymer is what gives the stone its 'opalescence' and add stability and durability to the material.

Kyocera Opal has become quite hard to come by and this small but alluring gem is a fine example of its kind.

weight:  0.86 carat
