An Illustrated History of Australian Opal

While the story of Australian opal has been told before, I don't believe there's a history of these wonderful gems that's illustrated with period jewellery featuring opals from the Land Down Under. <<NOTE: I'm reorganising this collection to fit in some fab new pieces, so some items may disappear for a while, but they'll be back soon with some new friends>>
