  1. There is a Facebook group already made for these miners and cutters https://www.facebook.com/groups/138040083195416/ The Virgin Valley Opal group https://www.facebook.com/groups/viginvalleyopal/ showcases from Nevada. The opals are so rare being mined in a jungle or in the desert in America the stores can't get enough to sell. It has to be proven dry to trust as a gemstone, but once its been really dried and then cut and dried again and then set; nobody can say it is not gem worthy.
