THIS OPAL WAS MINED FROM AN OLD MINE THAT WAS CLOSED YEARS AGO. MY NEPHEW TOOK OUT THE PILLARS THAT WERE SUPPORTING THE ROOF OF THE MINE TO GET HIS OPAL. THE PILLARS ARE APPROXIMATELY 3 FOOT WIDE TO WHEN THE EARTH WAS TAKEN OUT IT MADE A BALLROON UNDERGROUND. IT WAS DANGEROUS AND A RISKY JOB JUST TO GET THE OPALS. BUT THE QUALITY OF THE OPALS ARE GOOD, AND THEREFORE, WORTH THE RISK.
