These have been trying times for all, It has been very sad to see the effects of Covid 19 across the globe with many meeting an untimely death.

Much of Liz and my time is spent mining and cutting the opal we find, sometimes it’s gem opal other times it is mostly commercial opal we find. We also buy rough when the mine is not producing enough good opal.
We always have inexpensive lower grade rough material for sale, including 20 Litre buckets of off-cuts from $55 per bucket and better rough from $220 and upwards. These are pick up only and are available from our Ipswich facility.
Currently we have about 10 x 200 litre drums of low grade rough at the mine for $550 per drum (rough
