Sterling Opal has created a new lab-cultured gemstone that combines the play of color and distinctiveness of genuine opal with the economic pricing of synthetic opal.

Over twenty years ago Jim Zachery, the developer of the Zachery Process for turquoise set out to develop a lab cultured opal. It took him many years but he eventually developed a process to produce silica nano and micro spheres in commercial quantities with a polydispersity of .005 or better. This gave him the building blocks to begin development of a lab-grown opal. Nature’s ability to produce silica with the uniformity necessary to create opal is miraculous. It is only slightly less remarkable that man can achieve a very similar outcome in a laboratory.

The beauty of Sterling Opal is that while they are able to settle large batches of opal that will all have a similar look, each piece of opal is still quite unique. The opal is grown mainly in 1½” x 2½” squares, in lots of approximately 4.5 kilos. []
