The only known mining area of this material is Andamooka in South Australia. Andamooka was discovered about 1930 by farm workers from the nearby Andamooka Station and is located about 600 km north of Adelaide.

Andamooka is also known for other exceptional opal varieties. So the finest Crystal Opal in the world is found there as well as the unique Honey Opal. Since the deposits are almost exhausted, only old rough material from old collections is offered at very rare occasions.
