Loose Opal Gem - Opal Doublets
 
Since opals are often found as thin layers, decent size pieces are actually quite rare, those thin layers of precious opal are often mounted on dark ironstone, the dark background enhances the play of color of the thin opal, to create doublets and triplets.
 
Assembled opal doublets and triplets are often used today for mass produced jewelry.
 
Triplets differ from doublets as opal triplets receive an additional layer of crystal, plastic, and glass as protection.
 
Special care must be given to doublets and triplets as the glue holding them together may be loosen due to various everyday activities. Please look at the Opal Care and Cleaning page for more information about caring for your opal doublets and triplets.
