Welcome to Wollemi Gems!
Not far from Katoomba is the Wollemi National Park, where the ancient and rare Wollemi Pine was discovered in 1994. The name Wollemi is an Aboriginal word meaning "look around you, keep your eyes open and watch out" - and that is just what you will do in our beautiful shop that is filled with natural beauties.
Our shop is located at the top of the hill, in the main street of Katoomba, New South Wales, Australia. Katoomba is the primary tourism town in the City of the Blue Mountains. Katoomba sits atop the Great Dividing Range, about 1100 metres above sea level. The City of the Blue Mountains is situated within a World Heritage National Park. This is the town where you'll find the famous Three Sisters at Echo Point, the Scenic Railway, The Edge Imax Cinema and the Scenic Skyway, to name but a few of the attractions.
Our fascinating shop is a two minute walk from the railway station. Here you will encounter a complete range of opals and gems to accommodate any budget, from souvenir to investment stones, as well as collectors specimens.
Our opals are obtained directly from the outback mines, then cut and sold here. Consequently our prices are very competitive. The wide range of opal jewelry is set in solid 14ct and 18ct gold and sterling silver. We also have a great assortment of spectacular and rare Australian stones, such as the amazing zebra stones and fossils. We also carry a selection of handcrafted gifts that are manufactured locally from some of the region's finest crafts people. We endeavor to have as much Australia content as possible in order to support the local community. We have many fine photographs online for you to browse through. We also have a new section highlighting the beauty of opals using Macro Photography.
We are passionate about gemstones and in particular opal. Drop by and let us share our passion with you. You can also view the amazing Horizon Opal Specimen which is on display in our shop window.
