Opal Stone Price

Opal value in the market largely depends on the origin, color, clarity, play-of-color, shape and carat weight of the gemstone. Due to the popularity of Opal stone in the Indian and international market, Opal cost is also affected by the supply and demand cycle.


Note - Opal stone price in India starts from Rs 250 per carat ($4 approx.) and can land up to Rs 5,000 per carat ($75 approx.) and above, depending upon certain factors which we have outlined here –


Buyer Beware : Gemstone Weights in India are often expressed in Ratti (e.g. – Opal stone price per ratti). This system can be used to dupe customers who are not knowledgeable on how the conversion works. Read our guide to Understanding Gemstone Weights: Carats vs Ratti, and Don’t Get Fooled by Gemstone Prices in Ratti, instead of Carats!
  • Origin

    – Australian opal being the most sought-after origin, draws a premium in the range of Rs 700 to Rs 5,000 per carat ($10 to $75 approx.) . Being of slightly lower quality, Ethiopian opal price per carat ranges from Rs 500 to Rs 2,000 per carat ($8 to $30 approx.). Mexican opal or Mexican fire opal is also priced well because of its bright and unique orange hue.
  • Color

    – The degree of brilliance in color is the standard to judge the Opal price. A glowing gem in pure intense hue always commands a higher value. On the other hand, the dull colored Opal stones even with a definite pattern and colourful flashes may bring only an average price.
  • Fire Intensity & Pattern

    – In Opals, the number of colors, brightness and consistency in play-of-color collectively influence the Opal’s overall worth. The more intense, broad and colourful is the pattern, higher is the opal cost. White Opal price for stones with strong fire is as high as Rs 5,000 per carat ($........ approx.). whereas a plain White Opal stone value lies just around Rs 5,00 per carat ($7 approx.). Australian Black Opal prices are quite high for its outstanding play of color and high rarity.
  • Clarity

    – The value of transparent opal generally reduces due to the presence of a milky or cloudy background. The cost of crystal opal increases with the rise in the level of transparency. For opaque gems, like white opal and dark black opal, the presence of eye visible inclusions, pits or blemishes reduces the price drastically.
