Light Opal Solids

AUSTRALIAN OPAL SOLIDS. Mineshaft has a large range of light based opal solids, Opal specimens and opal carvings. Light opal solids vary from very cheap white opals to the best of the crystal opal. Peter spent many years professionally mining at Mintabie opal fields. He had several opal mines during this time at most of the main sub fields. He continues to cut magnificent opal from the rough collected from these mines. If you have a size, colour, shape or price preference please send us an e mail and we will respond with pictures of any suitable opals. It is very difficult to photograph light opal so in general the opal will look much better then the photos. Opal is 3 dimensional and often the movement of the opal gives it special character. Towards the end of this page are specimens of rough light based opal.
