SPECIAL GEM LAMBINA

Black Lambina

Lambina is perhaps the wildest opal mining area in South Australia.

We have some terrific black opals from Lambina most of it with gem crystal
on the outside we are anxious to put a stone or two into your hands.

The smallest stones are only $5,000/oz and I think we have some stones for as
little as only $200 each. We have larger stones at $7,500/oz which would be approximately
$500-800 each.

Then we have even larger and more brilliant stones at $15,000/oz. The super gems from the
parcel are $25,000/oz. Below are pictures of most grades.

Just over a week ago I secured one black opal from a miner, it weighs 2.5oz and I'm going
to sell the stone for only $5,000. Now whilst this is black opal from Lambina it doesn't
have the crystal colour on the outside that the other grades from the other parcels have.

About 1/3 of the 2.5oz stone is waste and when you hold it to the light you can see that
there is a lot of black opal inside. The miners are very cunning they spotted the black
inside and just clipped a little bit from the side of the stone and when it showed gem red
on black they didn't snip it anymore. So one can't be 100% sure of what the stone is going
to yield but the colour is brilliant.

Please don't hold me to this but I thought when I bought the stone from my mate that there
is a possibility of a $20,000 stone coming from this piece. Now if we cut it and sold it
for $20,000 the chances are the purchaser would resell it in America for a keystone which
would make it $60,000.

If you would like to have a look at any of these stones or talk about them, I'd be happy to talk to you.

I look forward to hearing from you and being of service to you.
Regards
Murray
