Black opal is from the Western NSW opal fields. Opals such as this are becoming very rare since the Lightning Ridge fields are running out. It’s a far cry from the heady days of the nineties, when this outback opal town was so crowded with buyers that you couldn’t get a parking place in the main street, let alone find a room in the Black Opal motel, where most of the opal buying took place. Ask us about opal jewellery designs. No obligation to suggest a style for your unset opal. This is a service based site.
Keep in mind that we have a free ‘late gift’ service just in case you need it:
Please ask about it in the blog below if you are buying this item for a gift and you have left it a little late to get to you on time. We can email the card to you for printing. Just give us the first names of the giver and receiver.
Free late gift card: In regard to using them as gifts, if you are running late for a gift deadline as often is the case, opalmine has devised a convenient and free service to help relieve the situation. We provide by email, a ‘late gift’ card which builds anticipation for the opal gift being given. This card is appreciated nearly as much as the gift itself. All we need is for you to give us the first names of the giver and receiver.
