Reply To: What is opal dust?

Profile photo of pmwangi

Opal dust, I think that is just a term used by buyers and sellers who deal with opals. It may probably be synthetic to some extent or a doublet. To Identify if it is natural, you can use magnification and see its inside characteristics. But to my opinion, it might be low priced. I tend to think it i the dust of opal combined together to form a piece.
