Thanks for the info.I found a complete earing and floating opal necklace in a basement storage in Atlanta Ga.The person rented this house for years and was a extreme hoarder.when he died it took five 40 yard dumpsters to clean out this small 2 bedroom duplex.It was so bad he slept in a chair and just had a trail thru the house. His bedroom and all the rooms were full from the floor to the ceiling.I think this was his mother's jewellery and it was found deep in the back of the basement.

It's been a few years since I spent time researching my Floating Opal Earrings. I "found" my earrings back in early 80s at a small antique store. I'm anxious to :"Examine" my earrings now that I have your great info -- I know they are screw back
Thanks for info!!!

I was given a floating opal pendant in the 1950s. After wearing it
for years, I had the misfortune of the bulb breaking. I have looked
for one to replace mine, but have had little luck in finding one.
Can you give me any information on where I might obtain one today?
I would really appreciate it.

I wore my mother's floating opal necklace and earring set in my wedding! It's Coro with a plain sterling cap.

I have a floating opal necklace and earrings that were my mother's. The globe on the necklace has broken and I rescued the opal chips before they got lost. I also have the necklace and the metal part of the pendant. I would love to find someone who can repair or replace the globe if at all possible. If anyone knows who I might contact I would appreciate the information. Thank you!

I have a floating opal necklace that belonged to my grandmother. I have always kept it in its indian pouch. I don't know if that means something new to people out there but, I would like to find out how much this one is worth.Bonnie Miedema

Hello - my Dad used to have a lapidary hobby in the 1960's and 1970's. I have a few floating opal orbs un mounted and some similar orbs with lead crystal in them. I cannot find anything about the floating crystal orbs. The opals might be Opalite as we lived in Pennsylvania at the time. Do you know if any makers sold the orbs un-set?

Hi, your article was a joy to read and so informative. Thank you for taking the time and so much effort to do this article. I'm sure it helped a lot of people who are interested in the fascinating history of floating opals.

I have a vintage floating opal that belonged to my mother that I wear occasionally. She had a necklace and a pair of earrings that matched. She gave me the necklace and my sister and daughter the earrings. My daughter put the opal on a necklace, but it came off in a parking lot one day and a car ran over it. I am trying to find her another one for Christmas.

I have a floating opal pendant that once belonged to my mother. Its always fascinated me and I've often wondered where she got it and how it was made. I'm so glad I found your website.

Hi! I am also an avid floating opal and floating aurora borealis collector. I have written an "amateur" ebay guide on this beauties, and I find your guide very informative. The facts that I've learned on these beauties were just by collecting them...no official readings done. Thank you so much for being so informative!!
