Opals are great. A strange coincidence is that opal is my birthstone and it's also my favourite
Looks like he's mining his own business
Destin makes friends with everyone he meets and I think it's magical. Destin, you have a superpower right there

I just showed this video to my dad, we were talking about mining and stuff like that.\nAfter about half a minute he said \
I think in experiences like these, the people you meet are more valuable than the journey itself.
Galen Staunton

Georgie is the best
He is from Greece, cool accent.

Nik Nak
old wogs are the greatest
PTC man
looking down, and pres dig....
Excellent video. The only thing I missed was a few words about how the land claim system regarding opal lots is specifically set up to allow small enterprises to succeed and keep big corporations out.

Love Georgie. What a cool guy! Most people in the world are great, but those who are doing what they love and work really hard at it seem to have a character about them. They know who they are, they are happy with who they are, and they inspire others to do the same.
chris j
Absolutely recommend coober pedy for a visit. Really is in the middle of bloody nowhere. Underground living is certainly a unique experience.
many times!
i. Teodor

Hi, I've watched a fair few of your videos, all of which I have enjoyed, but as a south Australian myself, this one absolutely blew me away, amazing the world is definitely smaller than we think 👍
king Arthur
havent they learned nothing from minecraft , dont dig vertical shafts
imagine if gorgie left him hanging there lmao
I heard that sunlight can effect opals because there is traces of water in the stones can you confirm or deny this
U need ur own show on tv man. I would definitely watch it.

LOL Welcome to South Australia\nHope you had the chance to drop into Mintabie, open cut opal mining. Plenty of these characters there, my wife was invited to learn to drive a D12 (?) dozer by a guy in the pub. It was parked at the tin shed service station tanking up on 900 liters of diesel across the road.\nLOL cowboy towns are always full of characters.\n\nFinding opal like that is pretty lucky, its not as common as this vid, that is why he was so excited, it could lead to a huge vien.\nAlways a treasure hunt, very addictive. Oh and yes, I have a few nice sample shellfish and worm tube opals 🖖
Been to Coober Pedy before and seeing the mines and town, very fascinating place Wommera is just down the road (well few hundred km) and well worth a look aswell, interesting story testing top secrete rockets in the outback. Gotta say really enjoyed this and wish it was longer.

I am coming to Australia in July to take all that Opel back to France, we will show you how it's done
rodgy gormin
that greek is a true blue aussie digger.
i toured this few years back, was 55 celsius in Summer with flies everywhere. as soon as you even go a few meters into a tunnel the flies bugger off and the temp drops. you can even camp under ground . the place is crazy. the hotel pool was so hot it was like a bath. not a single person stayed in pool they would simply dip into water for literally seconds then get out to let the breeze do its thing. Its not a exaggeration to consider this place Mars like

This little peice, maybe 10 thousand... 😂😂😂
Meets strange guy, goes out in the desert and gets dropped in a hole... sounds like a weird date to me :-)
