Australian
Doublets



Opal is also available in a layered or laminated form called doublets and triplets
A doublet is a slice of colourful opal glued on to a dark backing of potch (opal with no play of colour), obsidian, onyx or some other black backing
.
A triplet is a thin slice of colourful opal glued between a dark backing (sometimes plastic) and a quartz dome laminated to the top to protect the opal layer.
Doublets and triplets display a depth of colour similar to a black or boulder opal - however, they should cost a fraction of the price. The picture on the left indicates the grading level for doublets.
