Oregon Opal Vein!
 
05:43
I took the family to Juniper Mountain for some fire opal digging. I would usually make a lot more effort to work around the opal and get out larger pieces without damaging them but it was getting late and we had to go. Edit: After all the well deserved criticism I believe I should add a bit more- I usually make a lot more effort to carefully extract the material. I know as well as you that value increases exponentially with size. The thing here though is that in my experience all of the opal in these thin surface veins is typically very unstable. Only in the larger veins do I find material with the right hydration to remain craze free. This is based on years of experience spending time doing exactly what you suggest only to see it turn into bits all by itself in the open air. I could keep it wet but my goal is really to identify the more stable material in order to provide that higher quality product. There's also the time factor. This was later in the day, near sunset. I had worked patiently and carefully all around that vein for hours to get it as exposed as it was. You're right, someone else will come along and get it out. Not in one piece though. This is my own federal mining claim that I pay fees on each year. I would much rather get it out the way I did in the video and go home with something as opposed to seeing it completely gone the next weekend. Several times I've left exposed opal only to return to evidence that someone MASSACRED it. You think I pulverize it? Wait til you see how the claim jumpers leave it- tiny shards and white powder all over the hole. I totally understand where you're coming from, I do. I don't think you fully appreciate or understand my situation though. Regardless, you're all totally welcome to come dig your own material and show me how it's done. Absolutely free, no charges or fees. Jamie Lant on Facebook. Send me a PM. Or email [email protected] I certainly don't profess to be an expert. I'm learning as I go, like the rest of us. After all, realize I'm sitting on a mountain of the stuff. :)

Rainbow Opals - Hidden Treasure (Full Documentary)
 
25:31
Our world produces some incredible rocks. Take the opal, a precious stone that forms out of silica, in the dark under the surface of the earth. When cut and polished, it flashes with a gorgeous array of colours, from pale milky hues to deep reds and blacks. Now, an opal that has been named the finest ever unearthed will be making its public debut next month as the centrepiece of an exhibition opening at the South Australian Museum, Adelaide. Called the Virgin Rainbow, it was discovered in the opal fields of Coober Pedy by opal miner John Dunstan in 2003. It's actually an opalised fossil, from an extinct cephalopod called belemnitida that existed during the Mesozoic era. During that time, much of South Australia was under a vast inland sea filled with prehistoric aquatic reptiles called plesiosaurs. These died and sank to the bottom of the sea, buried over the millennia by sediment. When the sea dried up and the land turned into a desert, the acidity levels in the shallow top layer of the sandstone increased. This released silica from weathering sandstone into the layer of clay beneath, where bones and pockets left by disintegrated bones lay buried, carried down via groundwater. Further weathering lowered the acidity levels, which allowed the silica gel to harden into opals in the pockets and impressions left by decayed animal material, like cake poured into a mould, or to soak into bones and create a replica of the internal structure. The famous Australian opal fields of Coober Pedy are located in this region. No other environment in the world is known to have undergone this same process, which is possibly why over 90 percent of the world's opals come from South Australia. SUBSCRIBE

BIGGEST And MOST EXPENSIVE Gemstones Ever Discovered!
 
11:42
Check out the BIGGEST And MOST EXPENSIVE Gemstones Ever Discovered! From the most valuable diamonds and emeralds to the largest minerals, this top 10 list of super expensive crystals has some of the greatest discoveries! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "REAL Mermaid Sightings Around The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/ChM0CBRmVsM Watch our "10 Sea Monsters ATTACKING A Boat!" video here: https://youtu.be/0XROvoPCDNc Watch our "STRANGEST Animals People Keep As Pets!" video here: https://youtu.be/OMa96nPqz-Y 10. The Cullinan Diamond (530 Carats) The Cullinan Diamond was discovered in Gauteng, South Africa, in 1905. The large blue-white stone was just 30 feet from the surface and was extracted by a miner with a pocket knife. Easy peasy!! He took it to the office to have it measured, and it weighed 3,106.75 carats, about 621 grams, which made it by far the largest diamond to have been found at the time. 9. The Golden Jubilee (545.67 Carats) Weighing in at 545.67 carats, the Golden Jubilee diamond is the largest cut and faceted diamond in the world. From images, it looks to be a golden orange color, but it's actually graded as a fancy yellow-brown stone. 8. Star of Adam (1,404 Carats) In 2016, the world’s largest blue sapphire was unearthed in Sri Lanka, weighing in at a massive 1,404 Carats- which is the equivalent to almost 10 ounces. It came from a mine in the southern city of Ratnapura- a place that is known as the “city of gems” because of the large numbers of precious stones that are found there. Still, this was a major find- the Sri Lankan gem industry is thought to be worth about 103 million dollars annually, but this one was valued at more than 100 million dollars just by itself!! 7. The Rajaratna Ruby (2,475 Carats) The Rajaratna ruby was first unveiled in 1986 and, at the time, was thought to be the largest ruby in the world. It's had an eventful history, and was thought to have originated in either one of India's two well-known ruby and sapphire regions during medieval times- Kalinga and Kalpur… or Mogok in Burma- places synonymous with discoveries of large gems. 6. The Pearl of Puerto (75 lb) In 2016 the world’s largest pearl was found in the Philippines in the most unlikely of places- underneath a fisherman’s bed, where it had been for at least 10 years. According to the man, he had found it while out fishing when his boat’s anchor had become tangled with a giant clam, and he had to swim down to dislodge it. The pearl is one foot wide, 2.2 feet long, and weighs 75 pounds- which means it could be worth as much as 100 million dollars! 5. Sergio Diamond (3,167 Carats) While it’s not worth as much as other diamonds that have been found, the Sergio Diamond is something quite special- and is thought to have been the largest rough diamond to have ever been discovered. 4. Olympic Australis (17,000 Carats) Australia is undoubtedly the home of opals, and in 1956, at the ‘eight-mile' mining field in the town of Coober Pedy, miners found the largest ever to be discovered. It was dug from a cavity about 30 feet beneath the surface, and they couldn't believe their eyes when they realized what it was. Weighing a massive 17,000 carats, it's 11 inches long and 4.5 inches high. 3. 125West Ruby (18,696 Carats) Rubies are a type of corundum mineral- given their name because of their deep, rich, red hue. They come in a variety of colors, though, with red ones always being called a ruby, and other types being called sapphires. They are the second hardest known minerals, after diamonds, so great care has to be taken when turning rough stones into polished pieces. 2. The American Golden Topaz (22,892 Carats) Topaz is well known for its ability to form huge crystals, but the even the miners of Minas Gerais in Brazil were surprised in the early '80s when they dug up some particularly amazing stones. 1. The Bahia Emerald (1.7m Carats) And of course no list of giant stones would be complete without this big guy! This is the biggest rough gemstone that has ever been found- the Bahia Emerald. It was found in a mine in Bahia, Brazil, in 2001, and is a rock that contains 9 crystals- one of which is the largest single emerald crystal to have ever been discovered. In total, the Bahia rock is thought to contain at least 1.7 million carats, and is estimated to be worth up to 400 million dollars.

Miniature Dynamite, Blasting rocks for Opals. (Micro Blaster)
 
15:03
Blasting rocks with mini dynamite on our opal claim with this miniature dynamite system called the Micro Blaster to free up opals. This early winter trip with the family was a fun way to spent the Saturday after the first snow fall of the year opal hunting. We got to play with the jack hammer breaking up the bedrock, and also the micro blaster. The microblaster fractures the bedrock so it is easy to remove and sort through looking for opals. Most opals from this site are just common opal with some agate, but the rare find has some play of color in some precious opal. Eval love digging for opals, actually we all do. And blasting rocks with this mini dynamite makes it a lot easier.

DEATH OF AN OPAL MINING TOWN: Mintabie, South Australia gemstone
 
07:06
In January, 2018, the Australian government announced the closing of the town of Mintabie, where, in some of the world's best opal was mined. Mintabie is in Aboriginal lands, although in a resolution, the government leased the town for a period of time, ending in the early 2000's. The reason for the closure of the town (and the mines) was, in my view due to the depletion of opal. Most of the miners left and the town declined, prompting closure. This video is intended as a celebration of the great opal town of Mintabie and its fabulous opal.

The Red October claim is located in the middle of a slew of claims, and some of the other claim owners are secretive and protective.
