Much of the Welo Opal is produced from a single area of stratified volcanic rocks. The seam outcrops along steep valley walls where short horizontal tunnels are excavated to mine the opal. Underground mining here is very dangerous. The color play in this type of Opal is fantastic with flashes of orange, yellow, green and red coloration in a transparent background.
