I've had Coober Pedy on my bucket list since I first heard about it, probably as a high school student. It's not just about pretty earrings, these are amazing, beautiful stones. They are SO beautiful that diamond merchants realized they could easily become more popular than diamonds, so they invented a myth that opals are bad luck. Their formation is fascinating and nothing else is really like the beauty of opals. If they weren't so fragile I would have one in my wedding ring. My husband, who had the ring designed for me, had a gorgeous Sri Lankan blue moon stone set into it instead.

Never thought I would see you make a video here. There are spots where you can find allot of opal on the surface because many years ago the small bits was worth nothing and they would throw and flick small bits away during breaks So if you can find out some history then maybe you can find where they did this

This is my most favorite old man I have seen in my life. Looks badass and him being wise makes him funny. Plus, Greece accent. Perfect old man.

I'm not going to lie there are so many times that I have laughed at this video, especially when he starts talking about moments in your life and the 700ish holes around him with only one other person that knows where he was. I really liked this video I had no idea that this was how they mined opals.

Aren't opals UV reactive? Would it be easier to find them if you turn off the main lights and use a UV flashlight?
