SYNTHETIC IMPREGNATED OPAL

Our Impregnated Synthetic Opals - Higher Toughness, Bigger Sizes, Brilliant Colors

Due to a higher silica content of 82-85% and thus lower content of resin (15-18%) the opals display a higher strength, toughness and better chemical and abrasion resistance compared to similar opals.

The big size of opal slabs with diameters of 20 cm does not only allow the production of large objects but also enables a more efficient processing with a high yield.
These synthetic impregnated opals show an intense play-of-color with a directional (columnar) pattern without any cracks, inclusions or host rock (matrix). The opals are composed of self-organized and close-packed monodisperse silica particles embedded in an organic polymer matrix and due to the lack of water in its chemical composition they are not prone to cracking or crazing. The impregnated opals are available with a multicolored pattern in a variety of colors, sizes and weights, ranging from 50 - 800 grams.
