Our friends in China also enjoy our Opals Of The world poster and this poster has been translated to Chinese.

Chinese opal dealers have been in Australia for over century. Mostly in south Australian opal fields of Coober Pedy. These dealers were rough opal buyers and the rough was sent direct to china for cutting and processing.

Some dealers were based in Hong Kong and in shops today you can mostly likely find more rough opals than in the opal fields.

Today there is an establishing market for opals in china and they enjoy black opals and Ethiopian opals and enjoy boulder opals for clean colours or yowah or Koroit opal fields with ironstone with interesting patterns.

Chinese buyers have always enjoyed agate stones that have patterns so some Australian boulder opals are in demand if they have a unique pattern.

Opalauctions has sold opals to over 147 countries so opals of the world is a fitting name for this unique gemstone.

One buyer from Tahiti, a French controlled island in the pacific stated.

We love our rare black pearls but now I have a black opal with colors, brighter than our Pacific Ocean.

One retired usa serviceman who has visited Australia 50 years earlier stated about his boulder opal.

Gorgeous boulder opal all the colors, magnitude 10 better than pictured! I need new optic nerves!

Many of our buyers resell in their country. especially in Europe due to language barrier. France and Germany are good buyers for opals and many buyers sell on local online sites or market stalls that are very popular
