SCIENCE

 From Jeweller Magazine - Article written by our co-founder Stacey Lim

Spectral flashes that appear to dance on the gemstone’s surface are aptly described as ‘play-of-colour’. This phenomenon observed in precious opal has no reference to the body colour of the gemstone but rather to its sheen, and is due to a reflection of light from beneath the gemstone’s surface.

Opal is a form of hydrated silica containing up to 21 per cent water existing as free water within the opal or bonded to other atoms in the structure. Millenia ago, Australia’s now dry outback was drenched from seasonal rainfall. Water carrying weathered particles of silica in saturated solutions soaked through the sandstone ground rock, infilling cracks and cavities left behind from geological movement deep in the ancient bedrock.

The landscape dried as the climate shifted, evaporating water and leaving the silica particles to merge together into a solid state in the form of microscopic silica spheres. Essentially amorphous, opals are without a clearly-defined external form. Rather, they take on the shape of the space in which they are formed.

When conditions are ideal, the silica spheres are uniform in size and appear in a stacked structure that is orderly and symmetrical. Small voids occur between the spheres to create an environment where white light can be reflected and diffracted as it enters the opal into different wavelengths. This results in playful, kaleidoscopic flares known as opal’s play-of-colour.

CRYSTAL CARE

Although crystals have survived hundreds of thousands to millions of years (wow) in our earth they are still delicate and must be treated with TLC.

OUR ETHICS

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.

Read more:
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators. 

The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing. 

Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.

We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
