Our opal adventures are spilt into two different seasons. Opal mining takes place during the cooler months at one of our three opal mines in western Queensland. When it gets too hot to opal mine, we head back towards the coast to process our boulder opal finds into finished gemstones and specimens during our hot Queensland summer.
We opal mine for between 6-8 months in western Queensland, Australia. Here we share all the ups and downs of boulder opal mining, inclusing some amazing opal finds and wonderful landscapes.
We process our rough opal finds during the hot Australian summer months. This including boulder opal splitting, blocking out, shaping, cutting and polishing. All this work is done by hand using traditional techniques and in-house and our expert knowledge.
