Black opal is characterized by a dark body tone causing brightness of color which is unmatched by lighter opals. Black Opals are mined in Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, and are the most famous, and sought-after type of opal. The term 'black opal' does not mean that the stone is completely black (a common mistake), it simply means the stone has a dark body tone in comparison to a white opal.

Boulder opal forms on ironstone boulders in Queensland. This type of opal is often cut with the ironstone left on the back, as the opal seam is usually quite thin. Leaving the ironstone on the back means that boulder opal can be very dark and beautiful in color. The opal forms within the cavities of the boulders in both vertical and horizontal cracks. Boulders vary in shape and size, from as small as a pea, to as big as a family car. Boulder Opal has a tendency to cleave; when cleaved the "split" leaves two faces of opal, with a naturally polished face. This phenomenon is due to the angle the microstructure of the opal originally grew. The opal cutter commonly finishes the opal, with the natural opal veneer exposed with ironstone backing. Although Queensland produces other forms of opal, sandstone opal as pipe and seam and matrix, which are often found at the same mine, it is the Boulder Opal that is most sought.
