Buying loose solid opals as an investment might be a very clever and profitable idea. High quality Australian black opal can fetch a higher per carat price than a good, clear diamond. Their rarity and the fact that Australian mining fields are slowly running down is a very good indicator of higher opal prices in the incoming years.
