    I love how patient he is. The older the more knowledge. Best thing is he isn’t hesitant to teach what he’s learned. Such an amazing man.

    Cool fact: The biggest opal found in Australia was in 1956 and it was 17,000 carats. In todays money it could have been worth up to $250,000,000
    That is crazy!!
