|iN 1957, Alfonso Ramirez (of Querétaro) accidentally discovered the first opal mine in Jalisco - La Unica, located on the outer area of the volcano of Tequila, near the Huitzicilapan farm in Magdalena. By 1960 there were around 500 known opal mines in this region alone.|
I received my first opal today, and i'm happy with the service rendered, although I think i may have gotten to excited since this is my first bid...i think i paid for this small piece too much. :)1.75 CTS BRIGHT 'HONEYCOMB' WELO OPAL -ETHIOPIA [VS5592 ]
