Unboxing Opal: The Queen of All Gemstones
Australian opal experts, Danny and Michelle, give a sneak peek into their lives as opal hunters. Both parties in this husband-wife duo grew up in the opal mining business, and their expertise is second-to-none. This episode was the first of its kind in that had not one, but two guests! Danny talked about the process of finding opals – it’s like spending your days on a treasure hunt! Michelle oversees cutting and polishing the stones they dig up. She is amazingly calm when cutting material that can cost thousands of dollars!
This episode is filled with surprises – just like the grey boxes opened in this video! Danny and Michelle’s lively and fascinating stories will keep any viewer interested. Opals' play-of-color dances, but the stories that surround them are where the real romance is found.
