Our items are from a private collection. Most of the Virgin Valley Opal was mined by family in the 1990's. We have offerings to all types of gem collectors so please check back often as we finish listing over the next few weeks. Please be aware that the majority of Virgin Valley opal is specimen grade. We will, and do, offer both specimen and facet grade and hope you find something you like in our listings. Please let us know if there is anything special you are looking for, we will be happy to try and help. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.
