I don't think it's Australian, Most Australian precious Opal is from marine sediments so we get opalised fossils of shells and marine creatures, there's even a beautifuly opalised Icthyosaurus in the South australian museum.

We do have deposits of Opalised wood but they are common opal, not precious opal.

I think I have seen opalised wood in USA forums.

Folks that URL is not You Tube open it at your own risk. Probably a virus or phishing exercise. Suggest the user be deleted pronto.

The url posted in original message is ok - this is the short version provided by YouTube so you can open it quite safely.

However, we do ask that new members who are in the trade consider their posts in regard to the commercial posting guidelines - this forum is not a sales venue.
