GOLD COAST, Australia, April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 10 years, Opal Auctions has been making a name for itself as the largest online auction website for selling natural Opals. The family-owned business is bolstered by over 35 years' experience in the Opal industry; their longevity and familiarity within the industry makes the company unlike other auction houses around the world. The site has recently announced 'The Rarities Auction', which is scheduled to be on May 4th. This live auction is designed to give everyone in the world an opportunity to purchase precious natural Opals via the online auction.
The Rarities Auction will feature five hand-selected natural Opals sourced directly from miners. The online auction will begin at 6:30pm PST with live broadcasting on YouTube and Periscope. All five auctions will end within a one hour window.
Opal Auctions Director, Wayne Sedawie comments on this exclusive event stating, "The Rarities Auction is going to be monumental. Typically precious Opal auctions are exclusive due to their prestigious nature and geographical location. The online auction is going to give everyone around the world the opportunity to own a precious natural Opal from the comfort of their own home."
The appraised value of the Opals that will be up for auction range from USD$1,000 to nearly USD$20,000. Prospective bidders can also preview the Opals online that will be featured in the auction prior to bidding. The auction will include a rare Black Opal from Lightning Ridge, New South Wales, Australia, a harlequin pattern Opal and a pair of inlay Opal earrings from renowned Opal designer, David Freeland Jr.
