SSCPDR17-2.7gm2.7 Gram Rough Coober Pedy Opal-Donna's Rush Opalfield
Donna's Rush Opalfield was discovered in 2012 by John Dunston and Paul Reynolds with a little luck and lot of hard prospecting work drilling 70ft test holes. Donna's Rush is west of Browns Folly and SW of Shellpatch Opalfield...which makes it a long 40km-50km drive from Coober Pedy.
I was fortunate to get the tops and seconds grades from a Donna's Rush parcel and this stone is from the tops grade. These 2 grades all came from Gary Miles HUGE opal mine at DR.
High yield rough opal with Red/green/blue play-of-color with a tightly knot pinfire pattern. Dimensions: 19mm x 17mm x 8.6mm thick. 2.7 grams. Scale=20mm.
