|Comment||Rod, thanks for your prompt response. I took the photo in the sunshine so I could accurately reflect the flash/roll, that is why it looks so light. It is actually darker in person. You are correct -- it really is difficult to photograph opals! Your information is very helpful. I am happy to have found an opal expert such as yourself online. Thanks again. ~Lisa|
Answers by Expert:
all info pertaining to australian opals and opal fields is ok. online valuations is difficult but not entirely impossible. Photographs of stones should clearly show weight in carats and scale in mm. naturally photographs of opals are the hardest thing to take as a slight shift in direction displays a new colour or plane
