At microscopic scales, precious opal is composed of silica spheres some 150 to 300 nm in diameter in a hexagonal or cubic close-packed lattice. It was shown by J. V. Sanders in the mid-1960s,[4][5] that these ordered silica spheres produce the internal colors by causing the interference and diffraction of light passing through the microstructure of the opal.[6] The regularity of the sizes and the packing of these spheres determines the quality of precious opal. Where the distance between the regularly packed planes of spheres is around half the wavelength of a component of visible light, the light of that wavelength may be subject to diffraction from the grating created by the stacked planes. The colors that are observed are determined by the spacing between the planes and the orientation of planes with respect to the incident light. The process can be described by Bragg's law of diffraction. more info here on opal : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opal

Old mine, looking for gold.  100+ year old Gladstone mine. (Peachland)
 
12:58
We went on a nice family hike to an old mine site behind Peachland. The Gladstone mine (AKA Camp Hewitt) is an old gold mine from just before the turn of the last century. Well over 100 years old. This old mine is still very visible and has been a popular hiking destination behind Peachland for many years. This is one of many old gold mines in the area that have turned into popular hikes in the Okanagan valley. We grabbed a few test samples from the mine dumps to take back and gold pan out in a creek and see if we could find any gold that has weathered out. Unfortunately we did not find any gold in our small samples.Many old gold mines in bc have mine dumps that still hold free milled gold. The City of Peachland and the local hiking clubs have created a well signed and well maintained hiking trail, "The Gladstone Trail" to the area.

A Brief History of the Royal Peacock Opal Mine
 
04:21
A brief history of the Royal Peacock Opal Mine. www.royalpeacock.com It took fourteen million years for Mother Nature to make a Virgin Valley opal. It was well worth the wait. More than a quarter of a million carats of precious fire opals have been extracted from the Royal Peacock mines in the past twenty five years. The most spectacular black opals in the world come from the Royal Peacock mines in Virgin Valley, Nevada. Virgin Valley opals are found in layers of clay that were formed when volcanic ash filled an ancient lake millions of years ago. The surrounding forests were also choked with the ash. The lake had twigs and limbs and rotting wood collected in its coves. The buried wood decayed and left lifelike cavities as mementos of their presence. Heat and pressure formed a silica gel that percolated through the ash and filled the cavities. It gradually hardened into opal. In a small percentage of the opals the cells aligned to create opals with a fiery soul -- precious black opals -- the most beautiful gemstones in the known universe. Of course, not all Virgin Valley opals are "black." We also produce moss opal, lemon opal, crystal opal, and white opal. Additionally, we are the only known source for fluorescent opal, which fluoresces green when illuminated with black light. Virgin Valley opals are usually found in pockets. When you find one there are usually others nearby. This reinforces the current theory that most of the limbs were floating in an ancient lake, and crowded together in small coves and back eddies.
Blue Chip Mine - part 1 (hardrock mining)
 
12:05
Finally taking a video of the "Blue Chip" mine down by hope. My friend Dave was part of the team back in the 60's and 70's that was testing this mine to see if there was anything economical there. They decided it was not economical, but he says it would be perfect for a hobbiest miner. This trip we opened up the road for the ATV, and explored the area including 3 adits, and took a few hundred pounds of the quartz seam back for crushing. We are hoping we find at least a little gold when we crush it.

Each location is idiosyncratic, with different base colors characteristic of different regions. Australia is the primary source and known for its whites, blacks, boulder, and jelly. Mexico and Oregon material are similar, mostly jelly in water clear to white and yellow through Nehi orange found in Rhyolite matrix, primary sources for contra-luz. Brazil produces slightly harder precious white opal and much common fire opal for faceting, usually hazy yellow to light orange, often large.

Miniature Dynamite, Blasting rocks for Opals. (Micro Blaster)
 
15:03
Blasting rocks with mini dynamite on our opal claim with this miniature dynamite system called the Micro Blaster to free up opals. This early winter trip with the family was a fun way to spent the Saturday after the first snow fall of the year opal hunting. We got to play with the jack hammer breaking up the bedrock, and also the micro blaster. The microblaster fractures the bedrock so it is easy to remove and sort through looking for opals. Most opals from this site are just common opal with some agate, but the rare find has some play of color in some precious opal. Eval love digging for opals, actually we all do. And blasting rocks with this mini dynamite makes it a lot easier.
