Unique Opal Mine has a beautifully created underground opal mine for you to explore, bringing to you the “Coober Pedy Experience” with the convenience of an Adelaide Rundle Mall location. In our mine you can see the veins of real opal as they would naturally occur in the rock and explore different regions of opal mining throughout the Australian opal fields.

  • This shop is a must visit if you are in Adelaide. If you want a truly unique piece of opal jewelry, this is the place to go. The staff is highly knowledgable about everything regarding opals and the mining of them. There is even a museum to visit which I wish we had time to explore. Mason gave us great customer service and I walked out with the most beautiful Boulder opal ring that I will treasure forever.
  • This shop has truly one of a kind service - I was lucky to find this shop while traveling in Australia and had my engagement ring made by Tim and Steve in January 2017. They helped me choose an opal which was such a fun process, and the ring was ready to pick up a few days later! The opal is absolutely stunning and the setting is perfect. This shop is always so friendly and welcoming, and has really high quality standards. I just recently had my fiance's wedding band made by them even though I was still in the States. It came out exactly as I imagined and the turn around was really quick again. It is the perfect compliment to my engagement ring. Thank you so much Tim and Steve! I will cherish these pieces forever!
