Learn all about Australian opals and experience the thrill of releasing the fire within the stone in this hands-on workshop. Choose a parcel of three genuine Australian opals, each weighing 6-12ct, and then try your hand at polishing them to a high shine under the guidance of a lapidary.

What's Included?

  • Two hour opal polishing workshop

Learn all about opals, where they're found, how to value them, the folklore and myths around this magic stone. Located in the heart of the beautiful Blue Mountains, this 2-3 hour workshop kicks off with a short introduction to opals that will help you know what to look for when it comes time to selecting your gemstones. Each participant gets to choose a parcel of three genuine Australian opals, each weighing 6-12ct. Then, under the guidance of a lapidary, learn how to polish them to a high shine and how to release the gorgeous fire within the stones.

This workshop runs with a maximum of four participants.
