Using the wires and Opal Mining at Lightning Ridge Australia
Natalie came to Lightning Ridge with us for the first time this Easter 2016. We told her how Dad never could get the wires to work for him, then he read and learnt how to use them for divining. In the video Natalie uses them too. Unfortunately the section with Nat was partly lost so it is a little choppy. We lost Dad's fun stomping dance that determines the depth of the opal layer. The photo's at the beginning are of an opal tail-out that we witnessed when the young man with the beard (my son Adam) was about 5 months old. The beautiful opal photos at the end are a few of Dad & Mum's good opal finds from quite a few years ago.

Abandoned: Lightning Ridge outback Australia 4 miners digs
Abandoned.I decided recently to do a roadtrip out west of where I live and headed 8 hrs out to a place called Lightning Ridge to do some exploring and see what I could find. I found a lot of great things and was pleasantly surprised at what I did find out there. Lightning Ridge is a barren mining town based on opals and is the largest producer of black opal for the world market. It has a lot of people come into town to try and make their fortune but most rarely succeed and it is only about one in ten that will actually find opal. A lot of places I found had been abandoned, people probably ended up giving up and moved back east either because they were unsuccessful or the 55c heat in summer was too much to bare? I could have stayed for another couple of days to have a real good look around because there was so much to see and so many photo opportunities. I hope you enjoy this video and it is interesting for people not from Australia. I loved exploring here so leave a comment and let me know what you thought. Please give me a thumbs up and share my video to help my channel grow and I'll see you next time. Thanks for watching

Living underground in the Australian Outback
There's a treasure hunt going on in Coober Pedy, Australia, where opal was discovered a hundred years ago. As much as 80 percent of the world's opal supply comes from Coober Pedy's mines. But with summertime temperatures soaring to 120 degrees, the town features hundreds of "dug out" homes, burrowed into the rock and naturally cooled. Seth Doane explores the underground town, complete with bar, beauty salon, bookstore and hotel.

Australian Opal - A World Tour of Opal, Part 1
We visit the Australian Opal Centre in Lightning Ridge and explore examples of Australian opal, from many different locations. DON’T MISS PART 2: OPAL OF THE WORLD -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GH4SjkVx3QE 😄 Special thanks to Jenni Brammall at the Australian Opal Centre. This is by no means an exhaustive look at Australian opal. There are many other opal fields and opal bearing areas, and heaps more examples of opal formations, types, colours and weird quirks of geology. If there's a particular area or type of opal you'd like to see more about, please leave a comment! These examples were chosen from a selection of specimens; they don't necessarily represent the "best of the best" of each opal category. They're all beautiful, though!
