Opal is a truly classic gemstone, and makes gorgeous jewellery.
A doublet cabochon consists of two slices stuck together; a slice of dark matrix for a backing, and a topping of Opal. They are different to triplet cabochons as they do not have a clear protective dome protecting the Opal.
#13 - 17 have an ironstone backing, as is traditional with Australian doublets. The rest are backed with Onyx.
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.
