Altmann & Cherney
18 Pitt Street
Sydney
Australia
011-61-2-92519477

One of Australia’s many claims to fame is that it produces over 90% of the world’s supply of opal gemstones, and no two opals are exactly the same. You can discover the mystery and beauty of opals yourself by visiting the Altmann & Cherny opal store, an Australian owned family business established in 1948. As a visitor, you’ll be given an educational talk on where opals are found, how they are mined, and how to value them. Also, on display in the Sydney store you can see the world famous black opal known as “The Aurora Australis,” weighing 180 carats and valued at one million Australian dollars. This opal is particularly rare because of its large size (3 inches x 1.8 inches), and strong, vibrant colors. While you’re here, you can shop from one of the largest collections of Australian opals, and purchase a unique memento of your journey Down Under.
