OPAL


Let's dive into some Opal history, shall we? Back in the day, the Czech Republic and Slovakia were the OG sources of Opals. They were like the Opal pioneers, mining these beauties like there was no tomorrow. But you know how the story goes – all good things must come to an end.

Fast forward to 1922, and things were changing. Production in the Czech Republic and Slovakia was on the decline, and a new kid on the block was stealing the Opal show – Australia. Yep, those Australian Opals started turning heads and captured everyone's fancy.

So, what happened next? Well, let's just say that the Czech Republic's reign as the world's Opal producer had its final curtain call. Nowadays, if you're talking Opals, you're talking Australia. In fact, a whopping 97% of the world's Opals come from the Land Down Under. They've become the Opal kings, and nobody does it quite like them.

And there you have it, folks – a little Opal history lesson that takes us from Europe to the sunny shores of Australia. It's like a gemstone globe-trotting adventure, and now you know where Opals truly call home.
