I source my opals from local Australian miners and cut and polish them myself. It's often a messy thing to do requiring a lot of patience and persistence, often with muddy and waterlogged fingers, as there are many stages of grinding and polishing for each one. Yet a glorious delight to find that colour within a stone, something that has never been seen before. I tend to like the unusual ones, the unique and different that bring such natural beauty. All opals are solid unless otherwise stated.
The essence of Australia, a wonderful gift.
