The NSW State capital Sydney national gemstone is the black Opal. I first started mining the most famous opal gemstone location in the world, known by the name of 3 mile or lunatic Hill about 40 years ago, there were still some of the original mining prospectors, British European discoverers and pioneers of this region of Australia, still leaving in town when I first arrived. The streets were not paved in the township at Lightning Ridge, the digger’s hotel was a rough place for young new guys, plenty of men looking to test a young guy out, or maybe knock him out, gambling and hard drinking males that look like they belong in a while Western Lawless place where shootouts happen in town not only at noon. But the hokers had left the opal mining town, there was no women in town to be seen the boom days were gone and the oldest profession in the world had no reason to stay all the money business had left town.   Documentary very old video of 3 mile and Lightning Ridge opal miners.     Australian Opal Centre official state museum .

Other guys like Mr Gary Stone pass through town and stayed and was very successful, other miner came and when and came back like big Bill Williams, who got rich when he opened cut the famous 3 mile Scots claim, that was a stone’s throw from my 3 mile Opal Hunter claim.

How price opals when buying. How price opals before buying opal jewelry learn how to price opals, look for the best opal quality. Very easy to answer Australian industry has the best quality in every grade, semiprecious commercial grade and the best gem quality. I do not want you to get deeply into the professional dealing and wholesale side of pricing as this gemstone is the most difficult to price by far and will only confuse you. Simply buy the black opal that appeals to you about black opal rings , purples and lavender colors most affordable, then you’re looking at blue color, going up in price green color, then orange and the most expensive red. Remember you want a big deduction in price if any of these colors are not dazzling bright and clear, also without black and grey in the face of the gemstone, but little bit of black is quite acceptable. How opals price. But you must remember two colors are more expensive than single colors, purple and red is not always necessary more expensive then orange and green, if the red color is only noticeable from one direction when viewing and turning the ring jewelry. Simply if the orange and green color is more intense visually from two or three angles when you are viewing, this will make the green and orange color gemstone more expensive then the red and purple opal. If the gemstone is a high dome cabochon you’re looking at 30% up from a flat gemstone. White opal is a lot less than Crystal in price but a predominately black body tone N1 or N2 very dark around the sides. Another term semi black, where this jet black color comes through the centre where the colors on top will sit directly on the black background is priced 30% higher than Crystal opal, and Australian Crystal is much more stable then Mexican or Ethiopian Equivalent. The back of the gemstone is not that important as long as it is not to thick or thin without to much sand. The bottom line is it is always in the eye of the beholder simply by the one appeals to you the most, so this guide will be enough with out confusing the new first time opal buyer. Last of all good symmetrical shapes, oblong and round cut gemstones are very sought after so they will have a higher price tag then none symmetrical shapes. How price opals and how opals are formed. Opal are formed in different way’s and many theories have been published, along with evidence to demonstrate how the gemstone opal formed. Opal fields have many things in common sedimentary host rocks Jurassic and Cretaceous period around the great artesian basin situated in the outback of the semi and arid regions of Australia. Unfortunately some of the different associations like GIA classifying systems...
