FOUR WAYS TO VALUE AN OPAL

Qantas - - Qstyle. -

1.

Colours have dif­fer­ent val­ues de­pend­ing on how rare they are – red is the rarest. How­ever, a vi­brant blue is more costly than a dull red.

2.

If you com­pare two opals of the same size and qual­ity, the one with a darker body tone will be more valu­able.

3.

The rarest kind of opal is the one that re­flects bril­liant colours across its full face at all an­gles.

4.

The cleaner an opal’s face and the more de­fined the pat­tern, the pricier it is.
