  • It is a Museum of opals and at the same time is a gallery / jewelry of precious stones "Opals", that they are all in the area of the interior of Australia. And there to sell them in the gallery. I met the two girls that I attended, and explained me everything what was the Museum and jewelry and they were very kind.

  • It all starts with a visit to the small museum that explains the history of the opal in English. Then the store with a huge selection. We have been advised by a very nice seller. He took his time despite our indecision and our "poor" English. Whatever the budget, we have a quality Opal. A year later, my opal is always wonderful and reminds me of great Australian memories.

  • When you visit the block arcade Melbourne's most famous tried we spotted the sign. Underground, so surprisingly overlooked by hotel to shops, rough Opal specimen was exhibited. There are many types, become a feast for the eyes.

  • Could not thank the staff enough for their customer service. All were attentive and really helped me pick out the perfect opal. Thank you for everything, I will definitely be back!
  • I was walking the shop last week and decided to stop by as it seemed interesting. I had a chat with Will to decide on a gift. He was very patient and knowledgeable, explaining in great depth the intricacies of the opals we looked at. I was very impressed with the attention to detail and the immersive experience of the shop - it is like stepping into a mining cave! Overall i highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for high quality opals with a personalised and accomodating service.
  • Came in looking for a special piece; we were so impressed by the quality of the service. It made the whole experience for my partner and myself that much better. Thank you!
  • Expensive and extensive range of opal. Classy setting. Rude and snobbish staff. Clearly not family friendly and hated children. Will not shop here again.
  • Rude staff, more interested in talking to each other than potential customers. I started a conversation with them and some other customers joined in, they obviously thought the others were more likely to buy something as I was completely disregarded and the other customers referred to as "future opal buyers" that presumably made me a "non opal buyer" despite the fact that I had gone out of my way to gather information from the rude staff. Pretentious staff and ugly jewelery.
