It is no surprise then that the Dowton Collection has been a tightly guarded family secret.
Red Earth Opal was born in 2008 as Graeme and Sacha developed their confidence, experience and knowledge of the world mineral market. Through this process it became evident that it was time to address the growing interest and demand for the elusive White Cliffs Opal Pineapple. Graeme had successfully provided top quality Opal Pineapples to prestigious dealers for selling. However after almost 20 years of mining for these precious minerals and as a primary source of knowledge, it was time for Graeme and Red Earth Opal to enter the world stage as Dealers in their own right. Since 2012, Red Earth Opal has been showing at some of the world’s top Gem and Mineral Shows including Tucson, Arizona USA, Hong Kong and Australia. A permanent display can be found at Red Earth Opal Showroom, the home of the Opal Pineapple at White Cliffs Opal Field, NSW Australia. To contact us please email email@example.com

Dear Visitors and Guests,
Please be advised that Red Earth Opal Mine Tour and Cafe will be closed until April 1st, 2017.
Graeme and Sacha
The White cliffs ‘Opal Pineapple’ was originally given it’s name by the old time miners in the 1890’s as it ‘looked like the top of a pineapple’. Today we know it as a double psuedomorph after Ikiate formed under glacial conditions, hard to believe when White Cliffs is located within some of Australia’s hottest, driest and remote landscape. Found within a distinct level, the higher quality pieces form in a soft sedimentary clay band along faults or around what miners call a geyser or blow. Most pieces found will either fall apart through naturally occurring fractures or will have no play of the prized opal colours. Very few miners have ever unearthed such high quality Opal Pineapples as these. All purchase inquiries welcome to email@example.com
THE OPAL MINE TOUR
The ‘Opal Mine Tour’ is a unique look into the early history of the Opal Field, before entering into a working and producing opal mine. Situated within the Historic Diggings of the 1890’s, visitors get the opportunity to walk down a ramp from the surface carved through the multiple levels of diggings, to reach a depth of 45 feet. It is at this level you will see the demonstration of the mining equipment and even have a chance to dig on the mine face yourself. You too may be one of the lucky visitors who have actually discovered opal in Graeme’s mine, adding to the growing list. The Mine Tour leaves Red Earth Opal Café @ 3pm most days. All inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org or 08 80916900 The Cost is Adults $20 Children $10. Please wear sturdy enclosed shoes. No bookings necessary.
