Specimens of rough Lightning Ridge opal are coveted by collectors and fans of opal the world over.
We take the time while sorting through our rough to find and keep beautiful opal specimens. Some specimens are completely in the rough, with natural shiny surfaces caused by pieces fracturing during mining. With others, we polish the gem surface to reveal its colour, but leave the gem sitting in its natural surround of potch and sandstone or claystone.
Opal specimens are exceedingly beautiful, and we take great pleasure in finding them and sharing them with others who appreciate them.
