This Hypnotically Vibrant Gem Can Help You FEEL THE LOVE


Sarah’s Story:

On a cold wet rainy day, Sarah arrives home after a horrible day at work; it was one of those days where things went from bad to worse. An unstoppable mind-loop of critical and depressing thoughts snowballing down a mountain faster and faster.

When Sarah stepped through the doorway, her husband, Adam, was standing there in front of her with an odd look and unreadable expression on his face. Caught-up in her own bleak thoughts, Sarah shoots him a look that would have made the devil himself turn his head.

But not Adam… he just stood there saying nothing. He stared at her for a few moments admiring her beauty… and even in her darkest moments, he couldn’t stop thinking about how much he loves and appreciates Sarah. So Adam calmly and gently says to Sarah, “I can see that you’ve had a bad day. Why don’t you go into the lounge-room and take a seat and relax. I have something I want to give you." and then he said cheekily "I think you’re really going to like it".

And just like that. Instantly. Peace.

Like a bolt of lightning, or the swinging doors of a bar saloon — out went brooding thought and in strolled curious thinking.

For the first time that day Sarah was smiling. She sat down on the sofa wondering what it was — excited. All of the trials and turmoil of the day had been forgotten.

In walked Adam with a look of excitement written all over his face.

He sat down next to Sarah and said “I got this today and was going to wait until our anniversary next week to give it to you… but I think now is the right time.” He handed her a little wooden box. Sarah paused before opening it to look Adam in the eyes… And as she wiped away a tear that was welling up, she smiled and could only manage to whisper, “Thank You.”

Then, buzzing with anticipation, Sarah knew from the size of the box it had to be some type of jewellery.

As she opened the wooden box slowly, she took a deep breath when she noticed the most dazzling thing she had ever seen ... It was an opal… And it sparkled with a whirlpool of brilliant fire and colour.

It was both beautiful and compelling. She particularly liked the striking blue colour. She instantly imagined herself dressed up in her favourite outfit, the opal pendant glittering.

Sarah smiled even more - her special joyful smile. She savored the moment and knew instantly that this wonderful memory would stay with her forever. Adam leaned in and said "Why won't you go upstairs and try it on, I'll be up there in a minute with a glass of wine".

His eyes sparkled, as did Sarah’s!

A fascinating One-of-A-Kind OPAL MUSEUM

 Take a VIRTUAL tour through our museum...

Click on the arrows in the Image below...

 

 

 

So why did we open up a museum?...

 

We all know that life is all about having memorable experiences, so that's exactly what I wanted to do with the museum. Give a great experience by  showcasing this wildly varying gemstone along with stories about this iconic industry. To visit the Opal Museum website - Click Here.

 

 

You can read in my book how the Opal Museum was concieved, and how it has evolved...

 

 

I believe that in life we need to keep evolving and creating. Dream Big! Therefore my main goal is to build a brand new, purpose built Opal Museum - to find out more - Click here.

 

 

 


 

 

A question that I am often asked is...

  

"Where do you get your opals from?" 

 

The answer is everywhere and anywhere, as long as it’s good quality, 100% natural (solid) and a fair price. The bulk of my opal rough comes from one of five opal miners in Queensland, and a couple of miners in Lightning Ridge (NSW).  However as I sit here (Feb 2018) and look around the shop, I see opal from everyone of the 17 opal fields in Australia.  I love buying opal! - I'm just like most of my customers however, I've taken it to the extreme!...

 

  


 
Testimonial by Maria White Miller (facebook)

I came in from the USA for a stay with my fiance, and his dad was an opal miner. He learned so much about opals that he never knew, and I was just in awe the whole time in the museum . I left owning a gorgeous matrix opal from the shop. The shop owner and staff are amazing and so friendly! A must see if you like geology, history, and beautiful opals.

Why me being a Perfectionist is good for you!

  

When it comes to my business I strive for perfection. Especially when it comes to the jewellery. So when inspecting the jewellery, the item needs to... 

 

1) Have a nice balanced shape,

2) Be positioned in a way that “shows off” the opal (maximises the opal colour),

3) It needs to have at least one thing (pattern, colour, brightness) that makes it compelling! And...

4) Be 100% natural.

 

 

Here's my top tip for opal shopping...

 

Make it an enjoyable experience. If you're shopping for yourself or someone else. Do it with a good feeling  - Imaging yourself (or the person you're buying it for) happy and wearing the opal. 

 

Have fun shopping!
