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.
There will soon be a few options for buying, but currently the only one is in five gram lots, which typically contain 5-15 pieces.
