I went to my sisters for thanksgiving in 2007 and watched the show the secret. I was so move that i secreted the book into my life in 7 days. I wrote on our wall in our bedroom that we would find one of the most beatiful opels ever and the colors would be spectacular. I wrote down 5 thinhgs total. four of the five had came true in just the first couple of months. I was sitting in the john one mourning and as usual the lord spoke to me and said that today was the day for opels. I immediately exited the bathroom and told my wife get ready yo go to the desert for some opel hunting. She asid what but ok. n We went to nevada and got lost and had a hell of a time finding the place. We stayed one night and got up early to start our day. I had just had my fifth total reconstructive surjueries on my left hand and digging was vewry difficult to say the least. we started our day at trhe bottom of the wall. the instructor told us if we dug in more that 2 inches that we woul;d have to remove the entire wall of 7-8 foot tall wall. i couldn't do that type of work and I'll be dammed ifg my wife is goping to do it either. new play we dicided that we would just move up the hill after digfging in only one inch. so we slowly worked our way up the hill. *It was very hot that day 110 degrees. Instructor dude came over and my 3500.009 dollar 15 pound Bichon Frise dag barked at him and he made us put him in the pick-up. This was very upsetting to my wifew. so our work time just became very limited. she said lets go . I had stillo had faith. She was loading the last of our toolos when on my knees i said in my heqart to he lord that i still believed. I said it my heart so that saton could not interfere. I swun the hammer to the higest spot of the day and crack. My wife stopped dead in her tracksz to turn ansd see the 350 ct. Pure Black with all the colkors of the rainbow in them. I fully understood why they called it the royal Peacock. I have some white alot of clear and 250cts. of the awesomest gems i have ever seen. we tore out of there seeings how no one else got anythinfg and some of the couples had been digtging for over two weeks. The lord Yashua gave me the opels as a token of my l9ove for him. faith can move mounmtains. I still am having alot af madical tropubes but want to come and get the mother load of them all from thge lords wealth building saceret lands. I still dont know how to sale some of the opels and now that workmans comp doesn't wajnt to help me am going to be force to sale some of the stuff. I had an appraisal done in sacramento california anmd the lady said that they were worth no less than six thousdand per carot and as much as 190,000.00 for some of the smaller pieces. I have one 32 ct. one 44 ct. 178 ct. much much more of all thye colors and types i pray some one would be interested in helping a disabled worker in saving his home and his family please call 530-848-5568

This sounds like a great vacation even if you don't find anything! Of course finding something would be even better. I just talked to a friend about it and we are going to try to come next summer.

WE ARE LOOKING AT COMING IN SUMMER OF 2009. MY HUSBAND POLISHES OPALS AND HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR A SPOT IN THE U. S. TO DIG FOR THEM.

The price to dig has more than doubled, yet you're are more likely to be struck twice by lightning than to find black opal or opal of any value. All the other pieces of "opal" have no value and aren't much to look at. Alot of the opal jewelry in the opal store is made with artificial opal! That should be a clue. It's a fun adventure and there aren't many mines in the US of any kind that allow the public. But don't plan on finding opal and come prepared to spend alot of money. See it as an overall adventure.
