How we can go down???

Good evening!!

Today I had a customer who asked, "How do you find Opal?"

As I've explained on my recent blog,Opal is found from underground.
We go down between 15M to 30M to find Opal beds, then heading sideway.

Some miners still use their bare hand, dig all soil with shovels...imagine how difficult will it be!
Some are lucky, like this miner. He goes up and down with a lift just like this!!

Opal occurs in very few locations because its formation requires very special circumstances involving the coincidence of geological and possibly biological phenomena.
Scientific research and studies over the last two centuries have provided comprehensive detail about the formation of most gemstones. Unfortunately the genesis of Opal is still not properly understood.

If you would like to know more about Opal formation, please have a look at our website.

Have a lovely evening!
