Fantastic Experience
Amy_W, Apr 2021
We had constant fun, and we were very engaged throughout as we learnt so much about the stones and polishing techniques. Our 9 year old was always excited because of the wonderful stories he was told about opals and other stones. We left with three beautiful opals each that we will now be able to treasure - even though we arrived with no experience. Thanks for a wonderful morning in the Blue Moutains!
