On my recent trip to PV, my spouse purchased an opal from the "Opal MIne" on the Malacon. She took it to a local jewler to have it mounted. IT WAS PLASTIC! It cost her $100 US so it is not the end of the world, but the idea of fraud is rather disappointing to say the least. My question for the board, what recourse does she have? We have the "Certificate of authenticity" from the Opal Mine, for what ever that is worth. I would gladly send the "stone" along with any board member going to PV that would be willing to confront this fraud in my behalf. Ideas? Thanks for listening. Spook.
