Our collection of books on Opals and its different Australian regions are items of rare quality. Out of print, these will exhaust and have been purchased a long time ago by Opal Sahop owner who is a collector, now ready to be sold on.
Each book contains photographic illustrations. All our books are brand new.
The Author, Len Cram, an Opal Cutter, Writer, Photographer and All Rounder, is highly respected in the Opal industry for his achievements, notably a Ph.D. Len Cram ran an opal research laboratory and has cut such a path through the wilderness of amorphous silica science, that scientists from Australia and around the world continue to make contact with him He has unlocked many of the mysteries of the origin of Australian opals and so much so that professors of science have written to him seeking his knowledge on certain aspects of opals.
Len is recognised as a world authority on Australian opals. He is a fine cutter and judge of opals, especially the many complex forms of the Queensland Boulder Opal. He has been involved in every aspect of the trade and industry from mining to exporting, but the biggest impression, I feel, is clearly seen with his professionalism as a world class photographer of opals. His brilliant work on the precious gem can be seen in his books.
