Oregon Opal Vein!
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)
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

DEATH OF AN OPAL MINING TOWN: Mintabie, South Australia gemstone
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.

Lucky Discoveries That Made People Rich
From the largest opal in the world, to rare viking treasure hoards, here are lucky discoveries that made people rich! Subscribe to American EYE! 5. Lost Pollack Painting Sometimes you might knowingly have something in your house that you just don’t know is worth a lot of money This was the case for a man living in Scottsdale Arizona who had a college of modern art painting that he just found to be intriguing. He called over some experts to take a look at one of his signed laker posters which was only worth about 300 bucks but the experts noticed something else in the garage that caught their eye! They noticed the series of smears consistent with a modern artist consistent with Jackson Pollock. This American painter is considered a major figure in abstract expressionism and his paintings are worth big bucks! The painting heavily damaged but even then, still worth some serious cash. The had it authenticated by an another expert who closely examined the painting and claimed it was indeed authentic and could sell for anything from 10 million to 15 million dollars! 4. Boulder Matrix Opal It seems like digging around in Australia could certainly pay off. The world’s largest opal matrix was discovered in Queensland Australia in 2011 and this amazing stone has 55,000 carats! That’s about 25 points of pure opal! The previous largest opal ever discovered only was 6,100 carats. This mammoth find took place in the dry outback which receives very little rainfall. It measured in at about 10 inches in length and is valued at 1 million dollars! 3. Jersey Iron Age Coins A great deal of coins were found on the Island of Jersey in 2012 and it may shock you This island in the English Channel that contains a great deal of French and English culture but also contained a massive treasure. After searching for this treasure for 30 years, two amateur treasure hunters found these coins that date back to Iron Age. But no, these weren’t made of iron but silver and was the largest haul of celtic coins to have ever been found. Each coin you see in this person’s hand was found on the island of Jersey is worth at least 200 pounds each, and you can tell they’re still in great condition. This makes the total discovery worth 10 million pounds or 12 million US dollars. They were found under 3 feet of soil under a hedge in someone’s farm. The coins were packed in a clay chest and literally weighed a ton! It’s believed that it was stashed here to keep the Romans from plundering it during their conquest of the British Isles. 2. Sutter’s Mill Gold Discovery Now for a little bit of history. Sometimes when you discover something, you might make other people rich but not necessarily yourself and this was the case for John Sutter. This guy had some bad luck. James Marshall who worked at Sutter’s Mill discovered a massive golden nugget and told his boss John Sutter about it. The two decided to keep it a secret for a while but hired some men to help them pan out the gold. We’ll it turns out that all the miners they hired were a bunch of no good thieves and they stole basically all the gold they came across. The miners basically told everyone that there was gold in them there hills and this is what brought millions of people seeking fast riches! Fortune seekers from all over the world like from China, Germany, Mexico, Ireland Turkey and of course the easter united states, moved to California during this period After all his employees cheated him and took off with gold found on his land, the gold ran out and he was left basically penniless. He decided to give up on the california dream and moved as far away as possible. California officially became a state in 1850, partially thanks to there being gold here. If this moment in history never happened, the western united states would most likely be much less developed and less rich. Now you know why california is called the “Golden State”.1. The Whydah Discovery The Whydah was a British slave ship that was originally captured by “Black Sam” and was found off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts in 1984 by Barry Clifford. He actually credits a pirate treasure map that many discredited as being false. It seems to be the holy grail of pirate discoveries! Priceless artifacts were discovered including 200,000 individual pieces were received under only 14 feet of water. Rare gold and silver coins, gold jewelry and artifacts, cannons, sword handles and even a boy’s leg! The boat is believed to carry the plunder of 10 ships. Spanish Galleons were relentless looted by Black Sam until him and his crew were swept away by a strong storm in 1717. Divers pulled together huge clumps of gold coin masses that stuck together from years of being underwater. A museum exhibition called “Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah, from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship”, toured the United States.

Miniature Dynamite, Blasting rocks for Opals. (Micro Blaster)
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.
