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
  • Qualified instructor
  • All equipment and materials included
  • Three opals, 6-12ct per person

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. At the end of the session, you will leave with three magnificent and unique opals placed into a small commemorative display case. The perfect activity for a rainy day or if you just need a break from hiking.

We will still be taking up to four people per workshop but everyone must be from the same family bubble, so even if only one person books, all other bookings for that workshop will be closed. So please, if you want to book a workshop but you can see a space or two is already taken, please book for another day. Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them, according to this policy:
