If you've been a customer of Kernowcraft over the years, you will know that we are obsessed with Australian opals - and so are our customers! Every year we hand-pick freeform opals from our long standing supplier, who are a husband and wife team from Australia who mine, cut and polish the stone themselves. It is so important that our opals are high quality and ethically sourced so you can create the most special handmade designs.
