From Guadalajara: Magdalena Opal Experience

1. From Guadalajara: Magdalena Opal Experience

Visit Magdalena, a town full of traditions and four main opal mines where you will have the opportunity to explore and to appreciate the work of the miners. You will be able to go hunting on your own opal with a hammer and a helmet provided by the miners.  Start the tour in an opal shop and then explore the opal mines, learn about this precious stone and then hunt for opals. On your way back, visit an obsidian deposit to admire the place and feel the powerful energy of this crystal. Magdalena also has an obsidian deposit, thanks to the climate conditions and the proximity to the Tequila Volcano. Enjoy free time to appreciate the different kinds of opals and buy the ones of your choice. Have lunch in an excellent typical Mexican restaurant.

This was a great experience!! We went to the opal mine with the owner Eduardo and our guide Luis. They gave I’m using a hammer and you can go anywhere you want to crack open rocks to find opals. It was a lot of fun Afterwards we went to a huge field filled with obsidian. I have never seen anything like it. We had lunch with Luis at a local restaurant next to Eduarfo’s shop and the food was fantastic. I highly recommend this experience to anyone!!

Everybody was very nice. They even showed us where the "good" opals could be found. All 5 of us were happy and felt it was a great outing.
