BLACK OPAL RING…. A$15,000.

 The opal was mined at our Jet Black claim. It weighs 2.4 carats. It is set in 18 carat gold with Diamonds. Our Jet Black claim was years in the making. Black Potch was drilled up by a miner with a drilling rig. He kept all the trace  he drilled in labelled jars but because it was potch he didn’t do any work on the claim and prospected other areas. Years later he went and saw Stafford Scot who owned bulldozers to see if he was interested in cutting the claim on the strength of the potch. He thought Stafford may be interested in the claim because there had recently been some good opal found in neighbouring claims. Stafford was cutting the claim next to his for another miner. I was working on some of his claims in a 50/50 deal and I was mining underground with a bobcat. Stafford asked me if I would be interested in chasing this black opal  potch from the wall of the claim he was now cutting. It would be a 3 way split between the claim owner Stafford and myself. I felt it was worth the gamble and agreed. I was to do the mining with a little help from Dave the claim owner and that was how the adventure began. You can read all about it by going in to Peter’s story at the top left of our website and scrolling down to ‘The Jet Black claim’ The whole story from the beginning is there along with lots of pictures.

BLACK OPAL RING….A$7500

The Black Opal in this ring weighs 3 carats. It is multi-coloured and very beautiful and surrounded by small Diamonds set in 18 carat gold.

The opal was mined in our Bits and Pieces claim in the 1980’s but only cut by Peter recently. The bits and pieces mine was named this because all the pockets found were small. The variety of opal was quite amazing and the quality wonderful. Several small pockets were found. If you want to read the story about the mine and see some pictures than go to Peter’s Story at the top of our website and scroll down to The Bits and Pieces claim.
