Australian Opals

G’day mates…my name is Kelly Tishler a third generation Outback Opal Hunter growing up on the Glengarry Opal fields and living in Lightning Ridge~ With a love of prospecting, excavating and digging the rare black Opals~ I love to share our experiences of Opals and have been cutting for over 40 years …my grandfather taught me to hand polish on the opalfields when I was 8 years old.
I am always keen to learn more from like minded people!

I first went to the Ridge in 1976 and many times after as we lived in Canberra for 3 years. Went back a few years ago to find it greatly changed. We likely know some of the same people. We didn’t see much mining at the Ridge except for a few open cuts. Is there much going on in Glengarry?
