What Is Opal
Opal is very rare and very precious in ancient times. In Europe, it is a gem cherished by the royal family. Because of its magical light, opal can be traced back to the mystery of the Middle Ages. At Saga Bands, we use crushed opals of various colors set in the grooves of the straps and sealed with marine-grade resin. It is then sanded smooth and polished to give it a beautiful glossy look.
Types of Opal?
There are many types of opal. Fire opal, usually called Mexican fire opal, is transparent to translucent, showing warm colors of yellow, orange, and red. Opals produced in Peru appear blue or blue-green. The black opal is the darkest and rarest of all opals.
