John Ford exclusively works with opals from Lightning Ridge, Australia. Solid Australian opal is the finest opal in the world.
He places an equal importance on the fact that Lightning Ridge Opal is mined in an environmentally and socially sensitive manner. To preserve the natural beauty of the outback all mines are returned to their natural state. And the miners are individuals not corporations who operate in an ethical and safe manner.
