The heading suggests that there is such a thing a UN REAL opal jewelry. How can this be the case?
Well, up until very recently the attempts made at sythesizing opal were very amatuerish.
The difference between a real opal and a man made one was pretty obvious to all but those ǁho didŶ͛t look ǀery closely.
Man-made opals consisted of something that looked like some scrunched up lolly
of plasticpoor imitations were no match for the beauty, change of color and. These stunning presentation of the real thing.
This began to change in the late 1970͛s ǁith the iŶǀeŶtioŶ of such thiŶgs as͚Slocum stoŶe͛ aŶd GilsoŶ opal. To begin with, because of the imitation look of the patterns, anyone with minimal knowledge of the real thing could spot the difference at a glance.
However as experimenters continued working on opal in laboratories in Japan , China, and the USA, manmade opal began looking more and more like the real thing until today, unless you really know what you are doing, it͛svery difficult to tell the difference, as is the case with most other gemstones.
What advice could we offer to folks who are confused?
To begin with, the purpose of this article is not to condemn or criticize synthetic gemstones. There is a place for all beautiful things, particularly if you just want something nice to wearthat doesŶ͛t cost ŵuch,as would be the case with costume
jewelry which looks for the world like the real thing because the manufacturers have been able to dress up glass so that it looks really amazing.
Still, many of us prefer to enjoy the beauty of REAL opal jewelry. True gems that have been found in the ground. Usually with some imperfections as indications that they truly are a work of nature rather than a laboratorian.
For those who like to take this a step furtherand go for opals that are not just real but so much a part of nature that, in the case of boulder opals, often have part of the mother ironstone in the foreground of the gem, thus giving not just a natural presentation but offering all sorts of amazing patterns and colors of nature that make each stone totally unique in the world.
