Absolutely fantastic. Would recommend highly. Great service, understanding and lovely staff, super helpful and wonderful selection of opals. Definitely check out the reptiles 🦎 thank you for a excellent service and experience.
So down to earth. If you are looking to buy opals go here! Other stores just don’t compare when it comes to selection and service. We learned a lot and had so much fun picking out boulder opals. Unfortunately this was our last stop before we had to catch a flight and one of my biggest regrets of my time in Melbourne is not allowing more time to shop here.
