As I entered, my attention was caught the Evolution of Opals, huge dinasaurs, bones of various shapes. It has been a well known fact, that opals were extracted from stones however I was never of this interesting fact that the Opals were also extracted from dinasaur bones.

Dinasaur and its eggs.

 There are various stones on the display along with the description. You can also find the different types of opals such as, singlet, black opal, boulders, triplets etc...

Last but not the least, the museum sells opals and opal with silver and gold jewellery. I liked a few designs but that would be heavy on the pocket. This is my favourite opal doublet earring set in 18 carat yellow gold. The store has amicable staff who answer to all the queries put forth.
