Pricing of OpalsAll of our opals listed in our store are priced at WHOLESALE prices. Expect to pay 3-4 times more when purchasing a similar opal from a retail store. All our prices on our site are in US Dollars. We buy opal in the rough direct form the miners, all our opals are cut and polished to the highest standards by us. We can offer our opals at low wholesale prices, since our opals don't go through the hands of other dealers who would all put their mark-up on the stones. All our opals are solid (natural) Black and Crystal opals sourced from the mines around Lightning Ridge, N.S.W, Australia. Our opals are not treated or enhanced in any way. We DO NOT sell any doublets, triplets or synthetic opals!!
