Hi there. This looks like a lot of fun and even more so if I were to find an Opal. Want to do this. It's on my bucket-list !!

I'm thinking of coming here! One concern, your "Spam Check" requires people to know math.
Heh, just arithmetic, really. Hope to see you in the Spring!

You must do your own HTML coding. Your site really shows that you have a sense of pride in everything that you do. You must spend eons of time working on your website and keeping it updated. What a terrific job you have done. Very impressive!

We just returned from a day of mining and we enjoyed every minute of it. It is hard work, so you have to go in with the right frame of mind. You should prepare yourself for swinging a pick ax at high altitudes, and even if you don't find nice opals, like we did, it is all worth it.
The countryside is beautiful, and the owners enthusiastic and extremely helpful.
We stayed overnight and enjoyed the night sky. Being able to see the Milky Way is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
We are already looking forward when we can return.

I stopped in on my way home from CA. Jake was kind enough to help me out and made my experience even better than I hoped for. I obtained some amazing specimens. I'll definitely visit again!!

We obtained some fluorescent and moss opal from the Royal Peacock mine and processed a few nice pieces in a rock tumbler. We got some really nice stones with great flourescence. You can see photos of them on our blog at RockTumbler.com/blog/
