Chatham Opal Facts
From rare and precious dramatic black opal, to crystal, and to white opaque opal with its vast galaxy of color, the Chatham Created Opal is available in a wide range of colors. Pierre Gilson Sr. of France first invented the synthetic opal producing process in 1974. This process is considered the truest gemological process in the world today.
Unlike its natural opal, Chatham created opal is much more durable and not prone to breaking. And also the colors are natural with no treatment or enhancements. Chatham opal stone is in very limited quantities due to the 14 to 18 month production cycle. Matching colors is also extremely difficult.
