Hello Good Day,

I am a filmmaker and location scout for south america, especially areas around the Olmec and Toltec civilizations, I am wondering if you could guide me where I can find Opal to purchase in the markets in Mexico, South and or North America. I am have been searching where I can find deposits, stores or markets that sell. In am also interested in Green Obsidian, Amozonite, Emerald and carnelian in raw form.

Any information would be helpful,

Thank you!

If you want to go to the source, there are a number in the US: Spencer, Idaho, Virgin Valley, Nevada, Opal Butte, Oregon for some. There are other sources in Idaho as well, though I don't know them off the top of my head.
