BLACK OPAL $100 BOXES. These boxes are incredible value. Just click on the image for a closer look. Each box contains between 8 and12 carats of beautifully cut solid black opals. These would have to be the best value black opals available anywhere. The opal is very consistent from box to box and each and every box has equal value of black opal. We will often sell several of these to the same customer in our shop. They are great as give-aways. We have many local silversmiths buy these for their jewellery

MINTABIE BLACK OPAL specimens, These are hard to get now having been mined many years ago. Nice specimens of Mintabie semi-black and black seam opal. These pieces come from a claim I mined at Goose’s in Mintabie Opal field. The history of this claim could make a movie and is an incredable story you can read in a later chapter of Peter’s story.
