Science Team! I love hunting for gems, and my favorite rock (it’s actually a gel) is an opal! I found out there were opal mines just near the Oregon boarder of Nevada. Naturally I packed my bags and went!

I had a blast!!! I loved the entire experience from beginning to end and will certainly be going again.

Enjoy this video of my experience at Royal Peacock Opal Mines http://www.royalpeacock.com/

  8. Patti Messenger on January 21, 2020 at 10:15 am

    Nice! How do you stabilize the opal so you can make jewelry?

  9. Silver to burn on January 21, 2020 at 10:16 am

    That is cool, I didn’t know there was Opal in the US! I’m on my way bro!

  10. A True Wisconsinite on January 21, 2020 at 10:17 am

    Whelp. Looks like I need to take a trip to Nevada…first time I have had a care to visit that state. Anyways, what do you mean by stabalizing the opal by putting it in water?

    There is a place way closer by Reno with fire and black opels. They will even buy them from you.

  13. Byran Cook on January 21, 2020 at 10:23 am

    My favorite to Nick, we have Opal here in Oregon too.

  14. Erwin Wheeler on January 21, 2020 at 10:24 am

    Yes I’m very surprised that we have opal in America usually have to go to Australia

    What s the fee a day there

  16. GSpotter63 on January 21, 2020 at 10:26 am

    I found a few pieces of jem quality opal on the Yakima Firing Center in the state of Washington while in the military. Mind you I wasn’t doing any digging, it was just lying there on the surface. Walking around in an impact area is probably not a very safe place to search for opal….lol

  17. Paul Wilson on January 21, 2020 at 10:26 am

    Seriously, you call that opal. Come to lightning ridge, I’ll show you opal

  18. Eric L Krepps Sr on January 21, 2020 at 10:30 am

    Wow these people who call themselves a government sure do have a nice cushie thing going on, lets charge the public to go on their land that belongs to everyone to find a rock, and they pay it !!!

  22. James Curtis on January 21, 2020 at 10:34 am

    What are those things worth polished, $200-400 a carat?

  23. EighteenVp on January 21, 2020 at 10:34 am

  39. boneytrip on January 21, 2020 at 10:49 am

    0:00 – 0:09 honestly thought the reason was that you were going to invade area 51 but saw the title

  40. Tina Hale on January 21, 2020 at 10:49 am

    Your so cool! I would love to come with my two teenage daughters. How hot does it get out there? What’s the best time to go. Great video! This was really great to see you get the opal rocks.. Thank you.

  41. The Beautiful love story not start on January 21, 2020 at 10:50 am

  42. MrBobman1966 on January 21, 2020 at 10:52 am

    yeah that’s cool! im planning my retirement trip out west and definitely gonna stop by RP to give opal hunting a try, maybe head further north after that to hunt suns stones and thunder eggs in the high deserts of OR.

  43. Sally Schroeder on January 21, 2020 at 10:53 am

    the problem with the opals there is that they are very brittle . the ones you found are nice

  44. LICKHER&STICKHER INTHEPINK on January 21, 2020 at 10:53 am
