    Thanks for sharing, that place is a lot more reasonable than Royal Peacock is. Royal Peacock is outrageously priced, pretty much like you said, is for gamblers who don’t mind throwing money away . I hope all the rock you got there pans out really well and all of it was worth what it cost you. I’m an opal lover too, but not enough to get jacked or take a big gamble on getting a really nice piece. You can really get jacked buying rough opal like that. Most of what I ever bought was cut, back many years ago when it was cheap. It’s not cheap anymore, the Japanese bought up all or a large part of the Australian stuff and caused the price to go through the roof.

    where do you sell your opals and what do you do with them… do you polish them or just clean them up and sell them raw im new too

  3. Gia Thomas on February 8, 2020 at 12:49 pm

    Let me know if you want an opal cut for trade…

  7. bryson johnson on February 8, 2020 at 12:53 pm

    Am I the only one that had steve-o come to mind?

  8. Richard Brooks on February 8, 2020 at 12:55 pm

    Do you have videos that show what you do with the stuff you find. You frequently say that something is going to look good when cleaned up or buffed out, but I never see it in that state. Also, is this your livelihood? If so….fun job.

    I was mine foreman in 1972. scum bag owner would invade our rented area after a blasting and steal our good fire. Had fun setting off dynamite up in the hills.

  10. Lady-T Survival on February 8, 2020 at 12:57 pm

  11. johnny6148 on February 8, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    Just got back from Spencer Opal Mine and had a great time. Found some beautiful pieces and one that is suppose to be $100.00 stone after it’s cut. Thanks for your informative videos and it helps to watch before you go!!

  13. Teresa Judy on February 8, 2020 at 1:06 pm

  14. DachshundsRule on February 8, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    That bluebird totally gave you the eye, man, LOL. Bluebirds are very privacy-minded birds, but so beautiful it’s hard not to watch them!

  15. Rhyannon P on February 8, 2020 at 1:09 pm

    Hey! I just wanted to thank you once again for the help and advice you gave me when you were there. It was my first time ever looking for opals and I ended up with three small pieces of fire red opal with flashes of green!! I was only there a short time, but came away very happy with many, many opals!

  22. dethaddr on February 8, 2020 at 1:14 pm

    Quick question since this is on my list of places to go. Do you need to bring your own tools or do these guys provide them?

  23. Virginia McIntyre on February 8, 2020 at 1:16 pm

    Nice! This was already on my list to go there in August. With your video now I will not waste as much time getting to the good stuff! Thanks!

  30. Donna Collins on February 8, 2020 at 1:27 pm

    An awesome video! I’m an opalholic, too. Thank you for telling the difference between Spencer Mine’s opal and Virgin Valley’s opals. That’s great information! I look forward to seeing many more videos from you.

  31. David Bird on February 8, 2020 at 1:34 pm

    My first visit was in 1981! That was then we actually worked at the mine. Great noodling and amazing digs. You always want to find the round nodules and the cavities in the nodules. I love cutting Spencer opal…the people in the cafe are awesome too!

  32. magicbrd23 on February 8, 2020 at 1:35 pm

  33. The Mayor on February 8, 2020 at 1:35 pm
