A doublet is a composite of two pieces where a slice of natural opal is cemented to a base material. The back of the opal is painted black to enhance the colour.
A triplet is a composite of three pieces where a thin slice of natural opal is cemented between a dark base material and a transparent top layer (usually of quartz or glass).
Our stock of triplets is constantly changing. The triplets on this webpage are typical of the stock we carry. Please send an email with the size you are interested in and I will send photos and prices of current stock.
