Unique Opal mine is a huge tourist attraction and that special place to purchase that unique opal.

Wholesale and Retail with Australias’ Largest collection of opal on display

Unique Opal Mine has a beautifully created underground opal mine for you to explore, bringing to you the “Coober Pedy Experience” with the convenience of an Adelaide Rundle Mall location. In our mine you can see the veins of real opal as they would naturally occur in the rock and explore different regions of opal mining throughout the Australian opal fields. Take a few minutes to sit down and watch our short documentary on opals, explaining the different types, the regions where they are found and how they are formed.

All of this is FREE admission :-)

If you are lucky, one of our friendly jewellers and opal cutters may be in the process of cutting and polishing the raw stone on the equipment located in the mine area, and you can watch this amazing process of shaping and polishing these beautiful opals first hand!

Unique Opal mine also has a 100 million year old Opalised Dinosaur Plesiosaur on display in store.

This is one of Eight in the world ever discovered.

In addition to our beautiful opal jewellery, our expert jewellers can custom make jewellery in any gemstone and metal.

  • This shop is a must visit if you are in Adelaide. If you want a truly unique piece of opal jewelry, this is the place to go. The staff is highly knowledgable about everything regarding opals and the mining of them. There is even a museum to visit which I wish we had time to explore. Mason gave us great customer service and I walked out with the most beautiful Boulder opal ring that I will treasure forever.
  • This shop has truly one of a kind service - I was lucky to find this shop while traveling in Australia and had my engagement ring made by Tim and Steve in January 2017. They helped me choose an opal which was such a fun process, and the ring was ready to pick up a few days later! The opal is absolutely stunning and the setting is perfect. This shop is always so friendly and welcoming, and has really high quality standards. I just recently had my fiance's wedding band made by them even though I was still in the States. It came out exactly as I imagined and the turn around was really quick again. It is the perfect compliment to my engagement ring. Thank you so much Tim and Steve! I will cherish these pieces forever!
  • I have just had my second ring made by Tim and cannot speak highly enough of the whole experience both times. Excellent craftsmanship and amazing price and promptness is second to none. Thanks again Tim
  • Couldn't be happier with the entire experience. Excellent quality at an equally great price. Custom order was done quickly and in house. Proprietors were very friendly, knowledgeable and honest. Very highly recommended based on my experience.
  • I'm not usually the type of person who writes online reviews, but after the incredible service I experienced on Friday I felt like I should. My girlfriend and I have been browsing for engagement rings for a while now and were unable to find anything we liked (neither of us are big on the "traditional" look of a gold band and diamond - boring!). We were instantly smitten when we started looking at the displays in the Opal Mine. The man who assisted us behind the counter, Austen, was friendly, professional and funny and put us both at ease immediately. He was incredibly helpful with letting us take our time looking at different rings, and letting us know what services were available (like ring resizing, and the potential to custom make wedding bands that match for the future). He even organised a really great deal for us both and we went from simply "browsing" to buying two rings we both loved on the spot. It was an excellent experience, and I love the rings we bought. Thank you so much to Austen and Unique Opal Mine for being a part of the next stage in our lives!
