The Opal is the national gemstone of Australia - and the Australian Black Opal is the most valuable and widely known type of opal. A Black opal is characterised by a dark body tone which can range from dark grey to jet black. The internal structure of the opal makes it diffract light. Depending on the conditions in which it formed, it can take on many colours.

With the rainbow spectrum at your disposal in this textile, this jacket is always ready for any outfit and any occasion at any time of the day.
