Opal Beads

Browse Our African Opal, Mexican Fire Opal, Australian Opal and Peruvian Opal Bead Collections.

Whether you're talking about an Australian Opal or a Peruvian Opal Bead, a Fire opal or a Common Opal, all opals share certain characteristics. Latin for the term Precious Stone, Opal--despite its dehydration, softness, cracking and heat sensitive properties--is a valuable stone that is comprised of layers of precipitated silica spheres. The order of the layering often produces a rainbow sparkling effect.
