Description:

Also available in at a smaller scale here http://www.spoonflower.com/designs/1671665

Coober Pedy has some 4000 residents from more than 40 countries. Taking its name from the Aboriginal word "kupa" (uninitiated man or white man) and "piti" (hole), Coober Pedy produces most of the world's opals. Its opal fields, discovered in 1913 by 14-year-old Willie Hutchison, cover an area of 4,954 square kilometres and consist of 70 individual fields.

keweenawchris says: Thanks so much much for the postive feedback Kelly! It may be a long time before we make it to Coober Pedy or White Hills, but if you're ever up my way, we could go exploring around the old copper mines : )

keweenawchris says: Ooo yes Su! I googled White Cliffs and walked around town : ) It looks hot! But what fun it would be to dig for opal!

su_g says: Add White Cliffs to your list Lori - we stayed there in the Underground Motel on our recent travels, and this design makes me think more of White Cliffs (and Andamooka) opal than the kind you get at Coober Pedy. In fact this would be fantastic as bedspreads or feature wall hanging or something like that in the Motel (it's up for sale so maybe the new owner will want to refurbish...)

bippidiiboppidii says: Lovely Lori! Looks great printed :) I can just imagine how much you'd enjoy a trip to Coober Pedy - such a dusty dry place with such beautiful glistening stones lurking under the surface. Certainly a big contrast to the lush landscapes I've seen in your photos. I just love those old spools of thread too :)

anniedeb says: This is a beautiful design, Lori, and the notes are so interesting. Opals are beautiful gems. I am embarrassed to say that when I read "Coober Pedy," I thought it was the name of a rock band!! Wonderful repeat too. It's impressive at the yard view. Talk about a candidate for Spoonflower cotton silk!
