Review This Product
DisappointedI expected much more sparkle and brilliance. Love opals, but this just did not do it for me. January 26, 2014

I look for better than average from JTVyour sample showed 9 stones I got 20 one or two were ok but I do not work well with small stones so this did not work well for me August 29, 2013

Overwelming blacknessThere was so little play of color that I actually had to get out a flashlight to see if they had any play of color in the 21 gems. Will only buy again if the price goes way, way down . :( If you decide to buy I hope you get a good parcel. Remember: Parcels are bigger on screen than what you get. There is always a small percentage of them going to be bad. Rejoice when they are all good in the parcel you get. May 04, 2013

Parcel was ok, but not good enoughThere were some decent opals with color when you used extra lighting. A few had no flashes of color at all. It wasn't a bad parcel, just not good enough for me to want to keep. Most were average size, one pear shape was biggest in parcel. March 09, 2013

poorI am very disappointed with this parcel. The parcel I recieved looked nothing like what is shown on TV by the hosts or what is pictured on the website. The parcel shown by the host and the one on the website had nine (9) stones displayed. The parcel sent to me had twenty eight (28) stones and I almost needed a michrosope to see them. They will be returned. I have had this problem before with what was shown was not what was recieved March 02, 2013

Such a HUGE disappointment!!My parcel was so flawed by whatever treatment is done to these opals making them look hazy brown and stripes on some gemstones. Not all of them were like this but enough that this was sent back. The quality was just not there!! November 09, 2012

Almost 5 DiamondsThis is a very beautiful parcel of Chalama Black Opal. The colors and play of color are wonderful. The only reason I gave it 4 diamonds and a good on value was because my parcel had 23 stones. That's a lot of stones for 10 carats. October 12, 2012

Beautiful Black Opals with great color!My son had me order these for his wife. He has been giving her opal jewelry since they bagan dating over 25 years ago. He had hoped for just one to be as lovely as they appeared on TV which would be worth the price he paid for them, but was pleasantly surprised that ALL of them had great color! Now he has to decide which one(s) to have set into jewelry!!! August 14, 2012

LOOKED LIKE BLACK BEANSI was unimpressed with mine. The only time it had color was when it was in the sun. I didnt think it was worth the money so its going back. Sorry....maybe other people love these but I didnt. For the price I could buy 2 of my favorite Ethiopian opals! August 14, 2012
