But that was nearly 20 years ago now. A lot has changed in that time. Lightning Ridge source of opals has all but dried up. The expense of opal mining combined with all the rules and regulations put on the mining process now has meant that a lot of little guys can’t afford to prospect and combined with the downturn in the tourist industry, the industry has been badly affected.
Fortunately for a lot of the older dealers like ourselves, good stocks of opal were found during those years and they are still being offered internationally by means of sites like this.
