This Bizarre Australian Town Is Impossible To Find, Unless You Know Where To Look
Story Source : boredomtherapy.com/coober-pedy-australia/ Few earthly environments are as formidable and unlivable as our deserts. Scorchingly hot during the day, often frigid at night, it’s the sort of habitat that takes a strong body and a resourceful mind to endure. Still, outside of snakes and scorpions, what sort of thing would choose to live somewhere like that? As it so happens, there are some folks brave enough to do so, but you’d have to head to Australia’s Outback to find them. Not only that—you’d have to look underground! Miles away from any reasonable place to live in southern Australia lies its infamous Outback. The region is known for its treacherous terrain, suffocating heat, and dangerous animals. Not only that, but deep inside its red plains is the town of Coober Pedy. No, literally: the town is inside of them.

Underground Australian Town - Coober Pedy HD 2014
The Residents Of This Australian Town Live Underground For A Very Good Reason Coober Pedy is a small Australian town, known for its very bizarre living arrangements. Because this remote community is located in the outback, it endures seasonal dust storms, with temperatures that reach up to 118 degrees in the shade. To stay cool during the summer and warm in the winter, residents have built homes underground that protect them from the harsh elements. But why, you ask, do people live here? Opals. Cooper Pedy is the largest opal mining area in the world. While the name "Coober Pedy" comes from the local Aboriginal term kupa-piti, meaning "white man's hole," the town itself is made up of more than 45 different nationalities. And while this place doesn't seem like the most ideal setting to call home, opal mining is an incredibly lucrative business. Living underground for a few years in exchange for striking it rich?

Breaking Rocks - Opal Mining at the Koroit Opal Fields
I found these old pictures going back to around November 2000 when I did Opal mining at Koroit. I still remember how sore my arms were from smashing rocks open looking for Opal colour and I think you have to crack 1,000 rocks to find one good one with colour inside.

Using the wires and Opal Mining at Lightning Ridge Australia
Natalie came to Lightning Ridge with us for the first time this Easter 2016. We told her how Dad never could get the wires to work for him, then he read and learnt how to use them for divining. In the video Natalie uses them too. Unfortunately the section with Nat was partly lost so it is a little choppy. We lost Dad's fun stomping dance that determines the depth of the opal layer. The photo's at the beginning are of an opal tail-out that we witnessed when the young man with the beard (my son Adam) was about 5 months old. The beautiful opal photos at the end are a few of Dad & Mum's good opal finds from quite a few years ago.

Risk vs. Reward: Cutting a 161 ct Rough Coober Pedy Opal Gemstone
I take a beautiful "problem" opal and somehow manage to get some decent finished opal cabochons out of it. If you just want to see the results, skip to the end! Sorry for the "fast forward" segments! PRICES The rough opal cost in the mid four-figure range in 2014. The finished products (large and small stones) were sold for about 30% more than the rough opal cost. The "scraps" are mine to use as I see fit. CUTTING vs. NOT CUTTING: truly appreciate all of the comments, both positive and negative. I apologize for possibly misleading you guys about the quality of the rough stone.. At the beginning of the video I have photos of all six sides of the rough stone. Five sides of it either have major flaws or lots of sand and potch. Unfortunately, the "good side" is shown TWICE, so it may appear that the high-grade material extended all the way through to the opposite side. That was not the case: From the start of the video, the first 18 seconds are all of the "good side." The true opposite side can be seen at the 41-45 second mark. A number of comments mention that I "wasted a lot of good opal." First of all, I would like to mention that until you have actually held a large, expensive opal, you cannot appreciate the difficulty that you may encounter in cutting it. As many experienced opal cutters know, the yield (percentage of usable opal obtained from rough) for all precious opal ranges from 10 to 50 percent (on average). Some rough may yield as much as 70 percent or more; but because it is easy to detect "high-yield" opal, the seller will price it higher! The stone is the video is severely flawed, by any measure. My yield for this stone was 24.8% (40 carats of 161 carats). The majority of high-grade opal that was truly "wasted" was the opal that was "lost" in making oval, rather than free-form cabochons. For those who know the "loose stone" opal market, oval stones cost roughly 20-25% more than free-form cabochons. I wasted about 7-10 carats of high-grade opal (25% of the total yield; 6% of the 161 ct rough). [The two customers who ordered the pendants actually REQUESTED oval cabochons, and they paid the "oval cabochon" price]. Most of the material that was truly "wasted" was either sandstone matrix, or severely flawed or very potchy opal. Small pockets of high-grade opal that I cut through had to be sacrificed in order to find the main area of high grade material. An additional 10-20 carats of low-grade opal cabochons COULD have been made from this rough, but in my work, I have no demand for low-grade opal. (I personally like the lower grades, but my customers apparently do not!) I try to plan the cutting of an opal as well as possible, but sometimes, the cutting does not go as expected. Even high-yield opal (which this stone was not) usually have unexpected and disappointing flaws. After all of the great opal that I have cut, it is still find it unnerving to start cutting an expensive piece of opal. I should note that although the rough specimen looked nice on one side, it is by no means a "museum specimen." I personally collect opal that is TOO GOOD TO CUT and I DO NOT cut it. This one was NOT in that category. If you would like to see an example of a "TO GOOD TO CUT" stone, please see my video: https://youtu.be/vtWaYw5a5Lc Thanks for all of your comments and support!

Million Dollar Gamblers
Made by Roger Whittaker Films - 1982.

Produced shortly after the Coober Pedy Act of 1981, the film captures social and economic changes underway, hastened by the introduction of satellite television in 1980. The historically maverick town must adapt to the formality of local government if it is to continue supporting its residents.

This Opal-Mining Community Gives ‘Down Under’ A Whole New Meaning | Sunday TODAY
The remote town of Coober Pedy, Australia, is home to about 2,000 people, many of whom gravitated there to mine opal. The extreme climate of the Outback meant residents had to find creative ways to live and work – and they did.

Most Isolated Communities On The Earth
From the northernmost city in the united states to city that’s the furthest from any ocean, here are most isolated communities on earth. 11. Coober Pedy This isolated community is found in the Australian outback in the southern part of the continents and consists of 1762 people, many of whom are of aboriginal descent. The town is renowned for its opal production, giving it the nickname the opal capital of the world. Over 70 percent of the world opals come from the surrounding areas, making it quite unique. Many of the inhabitants turn for shelter underground due to the hot temperatures during summer. Guests who make it out here somehow have the option to live like the locals, in underground motel rooms like we see here. Coober Pedy is extremely isolated and getting here is no easy task. It’s positioned 846 km north of Adelaide and 645 kilometers south of Alice Springs. Visitors can also check out the Umoona Opal mine to get a taste of the culture here. 10. La Villa Las Estrellas In case you didn’t think a permanent settlement on Antarctica was possible, la villa las estrellas is there to prove us all wrong! Located in a Chilean Province called Antartica Chilena this country has claimed a little piece of the southernmost continent, and sports a population of 150 people. Here you can find buildings you’d find in just about small chilean community including a hospital, a primary school and even this church that we see in this photo. During summer time, the town features little to no snow and the population doubles. It’s certainly no stay at the hilton and it’s definitely not a place you’d want to stay for too long unless you like penguins, cold weather and limited internet connection. It’s stated that there are only 3 computers located at the school that have access to the internet. The addition of a post office has made it a little more accessible to the outside world but you’d definitely be curious how much some of the shipping costs here would be! 9. Urumqi China Located directly in the middle of Asia, this large city with over 3 million people is extremely far away from any ocean and planning a beach trip while living here would certainly prove to be extremely difficult. It currently holds the guinness record for being the most remote city from any sea in the world. It was an important stopping ground for traders who where travelling along the silk road. Although it’s officially a city in China, its isolation allows for people to hold their own religious beliefs. A large number of the population about 25 percent here is muslim which is practice by the uyghur people who are often persecuted in China. Some state that there are up to a million uyghurs in some form of detention camp and are brainwashed into chinese nationalism, speak chinese and denounce their religion. In any case, it seems like a tough place to live and it’s far from many other large international cities. So there aren’t too many places for the uyghurs to run to. 8. Utqiagvik Alaska Not too many places are more remote than Alaska. So one of the most remote cities in this state, is sure to make our list. This place was formerly known as Barrow, Alaska, it’s the northernmost city in the United States and not too far away is Point Barrow, the nation’s northernmost point. The city's population is about 4,500 people and comprised of 60 percent of native americans or people of Inuit descent. And if you thought it might get cold here, you have no idea! The record low that was recorded here was -56 degrees fahrenheit or -49 degrees celsius. The average temperature here is about -12 degrees F in January or -25 degrees C. And don’t expect things to warm up too much during summer. The remote community, like many in Alaska, rely on importation from airplanes which have been known to get caught up in storms. Ships must come here before the arctic ocean freezes over. It’s completely isolated from the major Alaskan road system, and isn’t featuring places like McDonald, movie theaters or malls. But if you need those kind of things, there’s two planes that leave here each day. However, the city is actually a big football town that’s featured on a television show for the NFL network, and this photo here depicts their high school blue turf football field. Imagine playing a game in the punishing weather right next to the arctic ocean. Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv

हैरान कर देेने वाला सच, इस गांव में जमीन के अंदर ऐसे रहते हैं लोग
There is a small village in Coober Pedy South Australia. Here, 60 percent of the people live in underground homes. There are several quarries of opal here. There is more than 70 opal fields in the same place, and it is the largest area in the world for the mining of opal. This place was liked by the laborers, so they started some rooms in this and stayed here. Bar, Casino, the church is all here ...  These houses are equipped with all amenities under the ground. There are around 1500 such houses, more than 3500 people live there.  These homes are called Doug Outs. There is no need of AC in summer or heaters in winter.  Temperatures are always comfortable because of being inside the ground. People here have no trouble with great fun here.  Along with the Underground houses, there is plenty of store, bar, casino, museum and church.  Here many Hollywood films have been shot. After the shooting of Pitch Black, the film's spaceships were left here.  This place has now become a hot tourism destination. People coming to Australia come to see this village

Note: just because it’s found on earth, doesn’t mean it’s from it! 10. Tanzanite 9. Grandiderite 8. Black Opal 7. Taaffeite 6. Alexandrite 5. Musgravite 4. Painite 3. Serendibite 2. Red Diamonds, Pink Star Diamond 1. Jadeite Poudretteite This mineral was first found during the mid-1960’s in the Poudrette quarry of Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec. However, it wasn’t until 1987 that the poudretteite was fully recognized as a new mineral. Even then, this mineral wasn't described in depth until 2003. As stated by several different sources, it’s believed that only a relative few will ever come into contact with this mineral and let alone ever even hear it mentioned. Grandidierite This is considered to be an extremely rare mineral and gem that was first seen in 1902 on the Island of Madagascar. It was named in honor after the French explorer Alfred Grandidier who once studied the island’s natural history. Grandidierite comes in a bluish-green color and is located almost entirely in Madagascar, although, there was a clean faceted sample that was found in Sri Lanka. Grandidierite is also pleochroic, which means it's able to absorb different wavelengths of light differently and that results in different colors, such is the same ability with the gems tanzanite and alexandrite. Painite This gemstone was first discovered back in the 1950’s in Myanmar by a British mineralogist named Arthur C. D. Pain. For the next several decades only two fragments of the hexagonal mineral were known to exist on earth. By the time the year 2005 rolled around, there were still less than 25 discovered pieces of painite and The Guinness Book of World Records had declared it the world's rarest gemstone mineral. However, that was 11 years ago and since then the origin of the original stones has been found, along with two other major locations that have led to the discovery of thousands of small samples of painite fragments. Even so, they’re still considered one of the world’s rarest minerals. Ammolite This rare gemstone can be found mainly in the eastern region of the Rocky Mountains of North America. Ammolite is an opal-like gemstone that is solely made up of the fossilized shells of extinct animals known as ammonites. This makes ammolite one of the few biogenic gemstones that exist, along with pearls and amber. Ammolites weren’t officially recognized as gemstones until 1981 when they were given official status by the World Jewellery Confederation. That’s also the same year that commercial mining for ammolite began. Tanzanite It’s been said that tanzanite is 1,000 times rarer than a diamond, which might as well be the case considering the fact that it can be found almost entirely near the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This is where the perfect conditions lie in order to form the mineral. Like grandidierite, tanzanite is able to produce striking shifts in color based on the crystal’s orientation and the certain lighting conditions. Caltech's geology division states this is because the color variations are caused by the existence of vanadium ions. Red Diamonds Did you know that diamonds come in a variety of colors? In fact, diamonds can range from being yellow, brown, colorless, blue, green, black, pink, orange, and red. That’s also the same order of how rare each diamond is classified as with yellow being the least and red being the most. Not only that but diamonds are also the hardest natural substances that form here on earth. Just like the colorless diamond, the red diamond is made purely out of carbon, however, what gives the diamond its red color is actually a deformation of their atomic structure that’s known as a “plastic deformation”. The Moussaieff Red is the largest red diamond in the world among the little known other red diamonds that have been discovered.

Leave the cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth behind and discover the Outback. Coober Pedy was a truly unique place. Never before had I seen 'dugouts' for homes. These homes have all the mod cons - except they are underground so the people can cope with the exteme temperatures. White Cliffs is similar to Coober Pedy. The Northern Territory is home to the Devils Marbles (rock formations that have shaped over time to resemble marbles. The Pinnacles in Western Australia are rock formations formed by the elements. Kakadu is massive and several days are needed to enjoy all the famous sites such as Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls Travelling overnight on the Greyhound Bus in an experience itself. The dark sky is covered with millions of clouds and the occasional Kangaroo attracted by the Highway Lights like to jump out in front of the bus - fortunately the bus breaks in time. There is so much more to the Ouback than just Uluru so set out an explore - you'll love it!!

Australian Opal - A World Tour of Opal, Part 1
We visit the Australian Opal Centre in Lightning Ridge and explore examples of Australian opal, from many different locations. DON’T MISS PART 2: OPAL OF THE WORLD -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GH4SjkVx3QE 😄 Special thanks to Jenni Brammall at the Australian Opal Centre. This is by no means an exhaustive look at Australian opal. There are many other opal fields and opal bearing areas, and heaps more examples of opal formations, types, colours and weird quirks of geology. If there's a particular area or type of opal you'd like to see more about, please leave a comment! These examples were chosen from a selection of specimens; they don't necessarily represent the "best of the best" of each opal category. They're all beautiful, though!
