Try for great boulder as well as
Yowah Nut and Koroit. Prices listed are full retail. If you’re a
qualified wholesale buyer, inquire about discounts. Barbara

I guess its now time for me to come clean...I'm an Opalholic, and

one of these days, you will find me on a street corner, holding a
paper bag with a sign saying…" I will work for

 I have been buying Opal Rough direct from Australia, from Ed

Wherritt, for a number of years, and I still get excited opening a
package. I usually feel like I get 4 or 5 times my moneys worth in
Opals. Not only have I received great pieces of Opal, he has also
helped me with all my questions on cutting and polishing.

I met Ed several years ago, I was looking for some Boulder Rough to

learn how to cut it. I sent him an email, and after an explanation
of what I wanted, I asked him to send me several kilos of rough.
WOW!!! was I astonished at what I got. Any one of the pieces cut
would have paid for my investment several times over…

I am right in the middle of making a page to display some of the

opal pieces I have received, you will be able to find a link to in
on the first page of my Web under OPALS.

Ed also has a web site for cut and polished stones, its at :
