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.
