Can't wait to come try to find some opals. Opal is my birth sign and I love them, plus, it sounds like a pretty easy way to make some cash which would be great right now as my job is ending. Is it really pretty easy to find some of value?

This looks like a great place to visit? How many visitors do you get on an average day during the month of August? Which month during the summer is the best to visit? How much in advance to reserve a site for a motor home? Thank You, Doyleen

I love opals and my husband loves camping in the middle of nowhere looking for rocks. This will be our next vacation.

I must say that my visit to the opal mine September 1st & 2nd 2006 was one of my greatest weekends ever!!! I had a great time finding opal, I found a pocket with lots of opal everywhere (LUCKY). I have spent the last week trying to clean off the millions of years of packed on clay with dental picks and toothbrushes and am getting very tired (more tired than I was when I dug them) I HAVE FOUND A GREAT METHOD FOR FINE CLEANING THEM!!! Get most of the excess clay off, then run them through a ROCK TUMBLER along with TINY LITTLE NAILS & WATER for a couple of hours. The nails poke into the clay wearing it off slowly. The tumbler goes too slow for it to have any damaging affect on the opal. As long as the opal has integrity it will survive a couple of hours in the tumbler. I got my tumbler at a thrift shop for $1.00, it is a kids rock tumbler that i have seen in toy shops for less than $20.00
