Opal in Matrix is a beautiful multicolored stone with a black base color. Since it is often discovered and mined in Honduras is has earned the name ‘Honduras Black Opal.’ Opal in Matrix is cut in Cabochon to display the gorgeous multicolored effects for which it’s famous. The stone displays its remarkable color properties which are ‘essentially’ tiny flecks of opal that shine naturally brilliant colors. These Opal flecks are embedded randomly in the parent rock rather than the seams of opal that normally appear in ‘Boulder Opal.’ The fact that Opal appears in many forms in many parts of the world lead it to develop in different classes with individually unique qualities.

Gemstones are accurately portrayed and comes with a gemologist confirmation of authenticity (not appraisal) but still helps when I set in my settings to make and sell rings.
I would recommend gem select. They care about all details from description to quality to packaging to shipping. I specialize in turquoise so I would like more explicit provenance than "American"... Couldn't they give me mine or at least state? Never the less very classy. Also, their turquoise cabochons are very thick for good and bad. I cut many in half to make them more versatile and commercially useful. If one can't do that then you are going to have to settle for wire wrapped jewelry. I think that overall thy are a great resource.
I am looking forward to my purchased opal to be set in a ring and a necklace for my sister for her birthday present I am interested I working with this company in the future if we are happy with our opals thanks so much for your communication
