    A small opal trinket brooch

    Coober Pedy is THE place to buy opals, some Duty Free, but don't expect to find them cheap, unless it's some tiny trinket.
    Still, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Such beauty such as opal comes at a price. Depends on what you'd like to buy. A very impressive ring could cost you thousands, but if you went for a doublet opal with a small chip of stone, it would be much more affordable.
    Also this could be a good place to buy aboriginal souvenirs such as Boomerangs and Digeridoos.

    paperweight

    Small opal chips may be comparatively worthless, but inside small trinkets like brooches and paperweights, they can still look rather attractive (especially when set on a black background)
