Our Process

Opal mining

Our opal mining season happens in during the cooler months in outback Queensland. Typically we start opal mining around early March and end in late November each year.

Opal processing

Our opal processing season happens in the heat of our Queensland Summer, when it is too hot to opal mine. It consists of breaking down or 'blocking out' the rough boulder opal, exposing the opal inside and then shaping, cutting and polishing the opal into either opal gemstones or opal specimens.
