There are opal stores everywhere you look and in all price ranges. They are actually polishing and grinding and show you the stone - unfinished and polished as well. We ended up visiting a mine. The scenery was lovely. The mines are pick and ax. I ended up with a ring although I had no intention of getting anything. This is a lovely side trip.

We decided to incorporate a visit to Magdalena along with a visit to Tequila knowing that it was well known for opals. While we were not particularly impressed with the jewelry settings, the quantities of both raw and polished opals was quite impressive. Before purchasing opals, I would want to educate myself on just what makes for a high quality opal and what prices one should expect to pay.

In addition to opals, we saw numerous obsidian statues, masks and other assorted items - some of which were of impressive design and quality. As a compromise, we both decided on an obsidian statue inlaid with various stones - photo included.

Will definitely return on a future trip!
