Rough Opal via Mining

Rough Opal can be gathered with a pickaxe from “Strange Rock” and “Opal” nodes.

There is no gathering level requirement.

 

“Strange Rock” Nodes

Click to enlarge images. These nodes are visible along the beach north of Port Epheria.

They look like flat stones stacked on top of each other.

“Opal” Nodes

Opal nodes are small, dark, and difficult to see. Usually located beside larger rocks.
