What is a monarch opal?
Monarch opal is a cultured opal certified by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America). It has nano particles of silica dioxide, just the same as natural opal. It takes about a year to grow. It is more durable than natural opals, so it is ideal for jewelry and it won't be harmed by detergents like hand soap. There are no color enhancements or dyes. All the colors are created by the prismatic effect of the light dispersion on the silica particles. These gorgeous monarch opals are grown right here in the USA.
