So what is the difference between rough opal and a rub? Well put simply buying rough opal can be risky - you just do not know what is inside! By buying rub opal, the opal supplier has removed part of the rough (hence, rubbed). This allows you to see the black opal beneath and it's quality. Black opal rubs are a great way of buying rough opal because you have a good idea of what you are getting before you cut the stone. Rubs are more expensive than rough, but certainly lower the risk of what is inside. Conversely, you might also miss out on a batch of true quality gem black opal by avoiding a pure rough black opal buy.
