Opal Specimens – Australian Opal (Coober Pedy)
These are small crystal pieces of Opal from the famous Australian Opal fields in Coober Pedy.
These opals are mostly crackled/crazed. This means there are white spiderweb cracks across the stones – they are no good for cutting or polishing.
They are, however, a reasonable way to get some Aus Opal at a decent price.
We do occasionally have some small packets of non crackled Opal that may be suitable for cutting – but I’m no lapidarist.
Our current stock includes:
- Five gram packets of crackled pieces, lower grade.
- 20ct (4 gram) packets of non crackled pieces. These are lovely stones.
