This is a noodling parcel from perhaps the most well known opalfield in Coober Pedy...8 Mile Opalfield...known for its quantity and quality of opal in past times. Some of the mine dumps (mullock heaps) there still rich in opal and continue to be worked with conveyor belt fed, black light dark rooms called noodling machines.
This parcel is a mix of grades and sizes and although some of this material has been partially worked by the opal miner, 90% is completely unworked.
243 grams or 7.81 ounces. Scale=20mm.
