Unless you can come to Lightning Ridge, it can be very difficult to get hold of ‘Ridge’ opal. We want EVERYBODY to be able to enjoy the pleasure and challenge of cutting, carving or collecting this amazing gemstone.

Opal is one of the most rare and beautiful of the world’s precious gemstones. Down to Earth Opals specialises in mining, cutting and selling Lightning Ridge opal of guaranteed quality.

If you are looking for a particular stone and can’t see it, please This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it and ask if we can help.

Many of our customers choose carved opals in preference to traditional cabochons. Why? Because of the magnetic beauty of the shape harmonising with an opal's particular colour and pattern – and because of the absolute uniqueness of each piece. In a world of mass production, our carved opals represent beauty, individuality, respect for precious materials and the value of 'thinking outside the oval'.
