Opal Yawah Nuts and a chance to help a friend


Okay.. first check out this video!
Hopefully Dev will share his story about the purchase of the first half of this opal.

Devin came home from Tucson one year and told me all about this wonderful opal lady he met. He couldn't say enough nice things about Barbara. We so saddened to learned that she is in stage 4 cancer treatment.

This was her message in the current issue of The Opal Express:

"To my AOS friends,
As many of you have probably heard, the big C stage IV is wrestling me about. I'm not going down without a fight but am wise enough to know that I need to put my inventory out there quickly. Inventory such as special specimens of both the Ridge and Yowah and Koroit opals that I tucked into bookshelves, back of drawers, and in special velvet bags for my viewing and fondling pleasure over the years. However, co-pays demanded before treatments make it necessary to sell. I can not think of a more appreciative group of opal lovers who would be insterested."

I hope you will keep Barbara in your prayers, as I know she will be in ours. And if you can help her out by purchasing an opal or two, that would be wonderful.
