Q. Is Opal appreciating in value?
Global demand is growing but the supply is decreasing. Basic economics tells us that the result will be
a net increase in value. The local Australian customer has (unfortunately) not had a great deal of
exposure to the incredible colour and pattern of Australian Opal, but this is changing! Markets like
China is also increasing the demand because Opal is so unique, making each jewellery piece eminently collectable.
