Our Story

Bio Noe

Noe Villalobos is the CEO and heart behind Western Opals. A professional opal cutter dedicated to bringing the highest quality Opals to his customers worldwide, he meticulously works to showcase the unique qualities of each piece. Western Opals offer both wholesale and retail opals of the highest quality. Each piece offered is truly one-of-a-kind.

Most of our opals come directly from our family-owned and operated mines in Magdalena, Mexico. We occasionally source from other mines, but we always guarantee only first hand, quality opals. Pieces not sourced in our mines will be noted as such in our product descriptions.
