Black Backed Opal Cabochons
Black backed Opal cabochons for jewellery makers. These are not doublets – they only have a black coating on the rear!
Opal is a truly classic gemstone and makes gorgeous jewellery. These are a good way to improve clear Opal cabochons and give you a lot of colour for a relatively low price.
These cabochons are similar to Opal doublets, but there is only a thin coating of resin or similar on the rear. While it does make the colours stand out really well, they are not classic doublets, which are normally backed with Onyx or black Potch.
These pieces are perfect for rings and necklaces or earrings. As a dark stone, these pieces can be set nicely in Silver, Gold, Platinum, Titanium, and other metals.
