of the opals above goes to a whole new page of opals. I will save the opal
lecture until a later date for an informative newsletter issue. For now, I
will basically keep to these categories. Some of my opals have been appraised.
I never appraise my own stones. I feel like this can be so misleading, especially
with opals. Judging opals can be largely subjective, and I want you to know
that a trained GIA certified gemologist has done the appraisals with no bias
from myself. Those stones that I have had appraised are the ones that stand
above the rest in fire and color. They are superb stones. Others may be just
as beautiful, but for one reason or another I didn't feel like they were as
valuable as others. Plus I simply can't afford to have them all appraised.
