Old miners claim that opal was first discovered at Lambina during the early 1930's. The discovery of high quality opal in 1996 led to a rush of claims being pegged. Shortly thereafter though, the Wik native title decision halted most new mining before many of these claims could be processed. This has contributed to a rapid escalation in price for Lambina opal.
Excellent ring stone. Bright blue and green in a very nice translucent base. Faces
perfectly in any light to show the interplay of the colors as the stone moves.
Nice stone showing greens, blues, gold, and orange. A good size and shape to be the
centerpiece of your design. Reduced due to white inclusion in center.
Bright semi-crystal. Blues, greens, gold, and orange jump out of this one in any
light. Sand spot in corner can be easily hidden by a prong or bezel setting.
Best of the parcel it was cut from. A beautiful green multi-color just waiting to
be set amidst gold and diamonds. Bright in any light and from any angle.
Glittery green multi-color in a perfectly clean light grey crystal base. Colors
- including some very nice reds - constantly interchanging from all angles.
Outstanding full-spectrum opal in a bluish crystal base. Shows more color
(especially the orange and gold colors) than shown here. Video upon request.
