AUSTRALIAN BOULDER OPAL ROUGH CHART

Australian Boulder Opal Rough is mined over thousands of square kilometers in central Queensland Australia. Below is a chart showing many of the amazing types of Rough Boulder Opals that have been found and mined in Australia.

The major Opal fields are Winton, Quilpie, Yowah, Korit, Opalton with many opal mines hundreds of kilometers away from any regional town. So if you meet an opal miner and he invites you to his mine you are best to take provisions for a 2 day drive! Some boulder opal is even mined closed to the Northern territory border. Many Opal cutters will specialize in one particular area as boulder opal is found in veins in bedrock and has to be split or sawn or chipped open to expose opal colors.

Most Boulder Opal is sedimentary so it is not cabochon but some colors and pattern are spectacular and opal splits make ideal earrings.

Lightning Ridge Opal needs water to clean the Rough Opal but Boulder Opal is found in more desert conditions and water is scarce even though the Artesian water trough is close by. To combat the lack of water dry agitators are commonly used to expose Opal veins in the host bed rock and bulldozers work well in these hot dry dusty conditions.

Diesel fuel is expensive now and many Opal miners spend thousands dollars each week on fuel so Opal is getting more expensive to mine and harder to find large deposits of Boulder Opal.

澳大利亚BOULDER OPAL ROUGH CHART

澳大利亚博尔德蛋白石澳大利亚昆士兰州中部地区已开采数千平方公里。下面是一张图表,显示了澳大利亚发现和开采的许多神奇巨石蛋白石。

主要的蛋白石领域是Winton,Quilpie,Yowah,Korit,Opalton以及距离任何一个地区城镇数百公里的许多蛋白石矿。因此,如果你遇到一个蛋白石矿工,并邀请你到他的矿山,你最好采取准备2天的开车!一些巨石蛋白石甚至开采封闭在北部领土边界。许多蛋白石切割机将专注于一个特定的区域,因为在基岩的静脉中发现了巨石蛋白石 ,并且必须将其分开或锯开或切开以暴露蛋白石颜色。

大多数博尔德蛋白石是沉积的,所以它不是凸圆形,但一些颜色和图案是壮观的,蛋白石分裂是理想的耳环。

闪电岭蛋白石需要水来清理粗糙的蛋白石,但是在更加沙漠的条件下发现了巨石蛋白石,即使靠近自流水槽,水也很少。为了防止缺水,干燥的搅拌器通常用于暴露宿主床岩石中的Opal静脉,推土机在这些炎热干燥的尘土状况下工作良好。

现在柴油燃料价格昂贵,而且许多蛋白石矿工每周花费数千美元购买燃料,因此Opal的开采成本越来越高,而且更难找到巨大的Boulder Opal矿床。

You are living my dream! I grew up having free reign at the Opal Hill Fire Agate mine not far from palo verde, California. Helen Madden owned it at that time(60's, 70's, and 80's), and let me collect all the Fire Agate I wanted. I took buckets home and buried them in the yard. I dig one up when I run out of the last batch! The fire in it is comparable to L. R. White Opal! My question is this: Can you "call colors" out of fire opal like I can with fire agate?
