Black Opal Lightning Ridge Australia || Free Shipping Worldwide

A special request from a valued customer to ship 5 million carats (1 tonne) worth of Lightning Ridge opal posed as a large logistical problem for Absolute Opals. However, Absolute Opal saw this as a challenge and applied a considerable amount of ingenuity to solve the problem. In the video below, Carl is seen as repurposing and strengthening four 44-gallon drums to hold one tonne of opal together. Can Carl execute his plan successfully or will it lead to a huge disaster?

*Note: This entire video was filmed with one take as the events actually happened. There was no prior scripting involved.
