Rare Large Crystal Opal Mintabie, South Australia, Australia The opal deposits of Mintabie have long been depleted with no new production emerging. The present example was set aside many years ago by the miner who could not bear to part with it earlier. Simply contour polished to reveal its beauty, a vibrant electric green blue pinpoint play-of-color are seen to dance across the surface. Such a notable piece would, no doubt, create a fine pendant.
