Australian Opal Mines

Our Opal turnover is quite rapid and many small but good value parcels are being forwarded on approval to clients who have indicated they are prepared to follow our judgement. Perhaps you too would like to take advantage of this service.

We look forward to dealing with you. – MURRAY W. WILLIS

Currently Australian Opal Mines is a leading marketer of both rough and cut opals throughout the world.

Our opal turnover

Over the last 47 years Australian Opal Mines has sold many millions of dollars worth of rough opal and I believe we are still the largest exporters of rough opal through the post we cater for everyone and sell opals between US$15 to US$50,000 per ounce.
Please take a look at the rough opal on our site for both the hobbyist and the professional opal cutter. If you don’t see what you want email Murray preferably with a phone number and he will call you re your opal requirements.

We cater for approximately 900 clients world wide and send regular offers of new stock to any clients who wish to be added to our opal offers list. We’d be happy to receive an email from you to be included on our near weekly “Offers List” there is certainly no obligation to buy if you receive our offers however you may find it difficult to resist many of the opals we offer at such reasonable prices.

Some of the best opal ever mined at Mintubi.

Towns near the opal fields rise and fall. Mintubi is one of the most famous opal fields. Although Coober Pedy is the opal capital, and largest mining area, there are many other smaller mining areas in South Australia. Mintubi (like “meant t’ be”) is next largest opal town, and at one time was more productive than Coober Pedy.

“In the long run our success depends on the prosperity of our clients”

“Murray Willis firmly believes the above statement and does all in his power to make sure the clients of Australian Opal Mines make money. He is only too aware if a client loses money, he will lose a client. After 38 years of experience in the opal game Murray is in a position to ensure that his clients make more out of some of the opal he puts in their hands, than he makes himself. That is why Australian Opal Mines after more than a quarter of a century is here to serve you”
