Well, this is year 14 or 15, I lose track. Hit one of the finest black opal specimens in all these years on this visit on 09/09/11. It's about the "diggin", the opal is a bonus. Thank you Mark, Jake, and Julie for your considerations! Thanks to Paul Jr. for the Matrix specimen.Hope you can keep the Northern Lights bank open a for a another few years, there is nothing like it!!!!! "Big Jim"
