Daybreak Crushed Opal
PRIMARY COLOR: Golden Yellow
SECONDARY COLORS: Green, Red, Orange
Daybreak Crushed Opal is a vibrant burst of color. This inlay material pulls inspiration from the first ray of sunshine that breaks through at Dawn. The golden yellow shade resembles the shinning sun, with no other light source until now it makes the yellow vast and complex. This yellow stone grabs your attention with the contrasting color pay due to the rainbow fire beaming from the crushed stone.
What is Daybreak Crushed Opal?
Daybreak Crushed Opal is a synthetic lab-made material that consists of Silica and Polymer rather than hydrated silica (natural opal). The polymer stabilizes our opal which in turn makes it easier for jewelry making. You will experience less 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 does not fall victim to color fading and is resistant to chemicals such as acetone and alcohol.
