It is of course the opal known as the Virgin Rainbow that will capture the public’s attention. But it is easy to understand why such a stone would intrigue and attract visitors.

The exhibition offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history of the town of Coober Pedy, famous for its opals, and thus to better understand the life around this impressive deposit discovered in 1914 by a boy named Willie Hutchinson. If you happen to be in Adelaide during the next few months…

See you soon
