The Diverse Opal Products website is the culmination of over 40 years experience and knowledge working with opal and related processing equipment.

My name is Robert Howie, and together with my wife June, we process Australian opal, supply tools and equipment related to the processing of opal and other gemstones. Fortunately, we have a good relationship with a number of opal miners who are able to supply our needs at times.

At Diverse Opal Products we don’t specialize in any one aspect of opal, only that we offer Australian opal, and try to give the best quality at the fairest price. Although Robert has been in this industry since 1978, he believes there is always something new to be learnt. We cut and polish or process raw material from Andamooka, Coober Pedy and Mintabie, opal bearing locations in South Australia. These well established fields are known for their bright crystal through to stunning black and semi black opal.

We also work with boulder opal from Winton, Quilpie, Yowah and Jundah in Queensland, Australia.

From time to time you will find other Australian precious and semi-precious gemstones at this site.

We are here to serve and advise. If you don’t see what you are looking for at our website, ask, it may be part of our stock that has not yet been photographed and listed for sale. We also have many associates in the opal industry who may have exactly what you need.
