What is Alien Bloodstone Crushed Opal?
Alien Bloodstone Crushed Opal is a synthetic lab-made inlay material that consists of Silica and Polymer rather than silica and water (natural opal). The polymer stabilizes our opal and makes a non-porous finished product. With synthetic opal you experience no cracking and crazing that can be detrimental when using natural opal in jewelry. By using a polymer it also creates a slightly softer product making it superior for turning and cabbing. Our crushed opal inlay material does not fall victim to color fading and is resistant to chemicals such as acetone and alcohol.
What Are The Differences Between Medium and Fine Size Crushed Opal?
Medium size crushed opal is beneficial when you want to have the primary color of the opal stand out. When the inlay material is crushed to our fine size, you will see less of the primary color and more of the secondary (play-of-color/fire) colors.
Medium Size: 0.5mm to 2mm Stones
Fine Size: 0.5mm to 0.25mm (recommended for ring inlays)
