Les McDiarmid's Profile
I became interested in Opals about 7 years ago and have happily visited the unique and fascinating outback town of Lightning Ridge every year since, fossicking for material and/or buying it from the local miners there.
I deal exclusively with Lightning Ridge Opal and get great pleasure in cutting and polishing my own stones. Turning a piece of unremarkable rough, sand covered stone into a shining, beautiful gem.
Now that I have a good supply of finished material it is time to start putting them up for sale so I can share them with others who appreciate them as much as I do.
Etsy is the perfect vehicle for this! Thank you for visiting :)
