Why I like opals

Michael tells what he discovered in Coober Pedy

semi-overcast 18 °C

Opal has really nice colours like red, green, blue and orange. The noodling (fossicking) was annoying because you might think you'd find opal but you didn't always.

I got some opal from loads of places - from the mine tour we did, the shop at the underground motel we stayed at, noodling in the public noodling area, and the opal shop where I bought some. Going in the mine and being pulled up on the swing thing was really fun. (Read more about opals by clicking here).
