Item Information

Dimensions (mm) 27 x 26 x 15mm
Weight (carats) 64 carats

Folks here is another of our annual Christmas Specials.

A magnificent piece of 8 Mile in the rough that weighs .419 ounces, mined in the 1980s.

The 8 mile field produced some amazing Opal and pieces this size are now very rare.

This piece was mined by the Gentleman in this video and one of his partners, from whom this rough comes from. Fortunately, my friend is not shown in this video, so I can l share it with you. It does contain some colorful language, but it very entertaining.

8 mile shares a similarity with the famous Olympic field in that when the miners were first selling the Opal, they let it go very cheap. They couldnt keep up with demand, then a miner cut a piece properly and couldnt believe his eyes. Both fields, the Opal cuts a lot better than it looks in the rough. It needs to be faced up to reveal the true color.


27 x 26 x 15 mm 64 carats

I think this piece has a very good chance of cutting a very large ringstone with an overall red color.

It will clean up very well and it is full of color, fire and pattern.
