I discussed and sent Rondeau a sample of Australian opal with digits, and then never heard from him again.

That's disappointing, not to mention, the waste of an interesting opal and incurred postage charges.
His contact info has remained the same; it's all listed on this page:

Perhaps a follow up letter, in French, might be in order.
