Australian Opal Doublet Jewelry

Australian Opal Doublet Gemstones are the slices of opal glued to a black backing, designed to imitate the appearance of a solid opal. The slices of opal are generally adhered to a black backing because the color tends to become much darker and vibrant with its unique placement. However, the costing of the stones is comparatively much lesser than the original ones because of the small amount of genuine opal.

What is a an Australian Opal Doublet?

A doublet Opal consists of two layers adhered together which is -

  • A black backing made of black industrial glass, colorless opal, hard plastic, brown ironstone and sometimes vitrolite.
  • A thin slice of genuine opal in between. The edges of the opal slice is generally rounded off to give the stone a cabochon. The thickness of the layers usually varies as per the stone and is provided with a unique look.
