"The Opal -
From Nick Le Souef's first trip to the opal fields at the age of 19,
Lightning Ridge Opal Mines has developed into one of Australia's most highly
regarded Opal businesses. Family owned and operated, Nick works with his son and daughter, Jonas and Atheka, to bring you Australia's most beautiful opals. Opal miners and cutters for over 40 years, most of our opals are hand-cut in-store by Nick or Jonas.
Our aim is to educate our customers so that they can make an informed choice when purchasing an opal.Visitors to our showroom will be given an in-depth Opal lesson which includes their classification and valuation, as well as cutting and polishing demonstrations.
Choosing an Opal
Lightning Ridge Opal Mines offers a range of beautiful Opal Jewellery and unset Opals for purchase from our Melbourne showroom, or from our online Opal Catalogue.
