Hi all,

I'm from Brisbane, Australia. I've been cutting opal for about 8 years. Caught the bug on my first trip out to my inlaws mine out at the ridge.... haven't been able to think about anything else since.

I hope I can contribute to, learn (no, learning never ends), and share my passion with everyone here.

regards

Gokhan Ozgen

Welcome, gozgen, from someone who's been afflicted with the "opal bug" for much longer than 8 years!

Wish I had relatives with a mine at the Ridge! I'm looking forward to seeing images of some of your work.
