Opal Minded is the only opal store in the world with a comprehensive collection of outstanding opals from the opal fields of Jundah in the South-West of Queensland. Jundah’s opal mines are situated in the opal mining area historically known as Opalville.
Our mines are in Jundah in remote Queensland. This is where the first black opals were found in Australia. This is also where the famous Galaxy boulder opal was found. This is where I mine our opals. Jundah opals. They are more luminous than others. Their colour plays even in the dimmest of lights
Choosing an opal is like searching for a soul mate. The real mystique and value of opals lies in the intangible rather than measurable. Yet, just like with a soul mate, you have to understand opals to appreciate them fully. So, how do you value them?
