Black Opal

Up to date on 13 October 2023 

BLACK OPAL SOLIDS (Australian). Mineshaft has a wide range of  black opal and semi-black opal solids. 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. Some of these mines produced beautiful black opal. Almost all of the black opal on this page were found in our own mines  and cut by Peter.

The black opal on this page is priced to leave plenty of room for goldsmiths, silversmiths etc. There will be lots added from time to time showcasing a few stones at a special wholesale price.
