Opal Spring received its name from the rainbow fire agates which gush out alongside 108,000 gallons per minute. We collect it directly from a covered spring head, which flows from deep within a basaltic lava tube. It maintains a consistent year-round temperature of 54° Fahrenheit, and is located in central Oregon.

*There are many types of fluoride, both naturally occurring and synthetically created. The natural version of fluoride is called calcium fluoride, and it's found in even the most pristine soils. All springs or natural water sources have trace amounts of calcium fluoride. We don't add any fluoride, and the minuscule amount in our water is completely safe and healthy for human and pet consumption.
We take less than .1% of total spring output. This ensures a thriving ecology for everything downstream.
