About Opal Polishing Workshops In The Beautiful Blue Mountains

Book Direct with the Owner at Opal Polishing Workshops In The Beautiful Blue Mountains with Newcastle Accommodation in Bowenfels, for all your Attraction and travel needs.


The workshop starts with a short talk about opals - where they're found, how they're created, how to see if a stone holds any precious opal - which will help when it comes time for you to choose your own parcel of opals. We have examples to look at and handle so that you are knowledgeable about which parcel of opals are valuable and have potential. Then you get to choose a parcel of three opals per person, ranging in size from 6 - 12ct. We then learn how to polish them to a high shine and release the gorgeous fire within the stones, which takes approximately two hours for all three stones. Once the stones are finished, the opals are placed in a small display case for you to take home or, alternatively, they can be set in a piece of jewellery either on site or by your own jeweller back home.

    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!

    This workshop was absolutely the best money I have ever spent! Sonja was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and her passion and love for opals and precious stones is contagious! I left with three beautiful opals, (one of which is apparently worth around $500!). I will definitely be sending one of them back to Sonja to have a ring made. She has two beautiful dogs and two cats, so her place is heaven for animal lovers! I will most definitely be doing the workshop again with friends in tow! Thanks again Sonja!

    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!!
