This book is primarily about buying opals because Australia is one of the world’s most important sources of opal.  Indeed, the Australian Women’s National Basketball team is nicknamed the Opals!  


However, in these pages you will also find all the information you need to buy other gemstones in Australia with confidence, such as sapphires, pearls and diamonds.  Don’t worry if you have little or no knowledge about gemstones—I have written this book with you in mind.  


This book will give you the up to date, researched and reliable information you need before making your purchase.
