AUSTRALIAN OPAL ON-LINE SURVEY
The LRMA is seeking people’s opinion on Australian opal’s place in the coloured gemstone market. The LRMA has designed a very short on-line survey and it would be excellent if as many people as possible complete it. It will only take about 5 minutes and feel free to spread it far and wide.
The results will be presented at the 9th National Opal Symposium.
