    I am interested in Opal Unset 0033. What is the correct weight? Do you have better pictures of all sides? Is it priced in US dollars ($1000)? Is that negotiable? Is there any tax or charge for shipping to the US (Virginia)?

      David, many apologies. Somehow the size and the weight of the opal were listed incorrectly. its actually 12×7 mm and 2.35 carats. Of course the dime coin helps identify the size. Its a magnificent blue green black opal. The color is becoming rare as are all black opals because Lightning Ridge production is nearly at a standstill because of new fields not being found. I cannot reduce the price because the freight is included in it. I am not sure of your state taxes but i send many stones to the USA and customers have never complained about this. it seems to go through without hesitation. possibly because of the free trade agreement between the USA and Australia. However, what i will do is include a couple of small matching black opals that you can use for earrings if you ever want to. Also, if you need any help with designs, i can help you at no charge. i will send you a covering email just to make contact. Thanks for visiting opalmine. peter

    DO you have shop in Sydney? I will be travelling to Sydney soon. If you do not have an outlet, most probably I will ask you to send them to my hotel during my stay.

      Dear Mr. Ling. No, we only sell online because it saves on overheads and we can keep our prices down. No problems to send overnight to most locations in Australia. Opal can be sent by yellow bag. sometimes it takes two days but mostly next day. Let me know what you like and i will put a temporary hold on the items because particularly this time of the year things sell quickly. But usually no problems as we do have good back up stocks. Keep in mind that when ordering, use your overseas address so save on GST. You can then give me your Hotel address and phone number for local delivery. Incidentally its no problem if you decide against your preference, or indeed if you dont buy at all. pleased to help whatever way we can to make your trip pleasurable.

      Terry, yes but it depends on how large you want the opal offcuts and often there is very little color. its pretty mixed.
