Follow along on our opal gemstone hunting adventures as we chase down the allusive Australian opal. Driving all over the Aussie outback we travel to remote places like Lightning ridge, NSW in search of Black opal, Coober Pedy, SA, where we mine for white opal, crystal opal, fire opal and opalised shells and fossils. Videos are constantly being uploaded on our Facebook and Instagram pages where you can ask us questions and comment.
In this Blog we talk about a few of the different types of Boulder Opal that can be found in Australia. Boulder opal is one of my favourites! With its earthy tones and natural aussie outback backing it really highlights the gemmy opal entangled within the host rock! Cutting boulder opal can be challenging but we have done all the hard work for you. Check out our Boulder opal range in our store at www.opalquest.com
