A note from Opal polishing workshops in the beautiful Blue Mountains
We are still be taking up to four people per workshop but everyone must be from the same family bubble, so even if only one person books, all other bookings for that workshop will be closed.

Overview
This gives people the unique experience of polishing genuine Australian opal. There is nowhere else where you can polish opals and it is very likely that the opal you leave with will be worth more than the money you spent on this workshop. In fact, potentially you could polish an opal that is worth hundreds of dollars as it is impossible to see what an opal will look like before it's been polished, so it is truly the luck of the draw. But we give you the information to help you make an informed choice of the parcel of opals you choose. Opal is becoming increasingly valuable with all opal rough being snapped up and it's not going to get better in future as some opal fields are being closed down. This truly is the opportunity of a lifetime.

My partner and I had way more fun than we expected and learnt so much about opals. The opals we polished were so beautiful and we would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a relaxing and informative activity in the blue mountains. Thank you!!
