Mining absolutely stunning natural Australian opal on The Farm, Coober Pedy Australia.
Several years ago we were in Coober Pedy and a bit hard up for places to find opal.
I went for a fly over on Google maps and found this open cut i knew had been started over 20 years ago but had now been completed to the opal level. We went to check and sure enough it had been abandoned so we had a scratch around for a few days, and here are some of the results in a quick video! Shows opening up, digging in the opal level, some of the stunning precious opal kingstones, and of course, the finished one of a kind pieces of beautiful Australian opal jewelry that resulted.
