Boulder opal is a type of opal, not a particular mine. I think the other pieces look like they could possibly be Coober Pedy, maybe fossil clamshell pieces or just opal. What is the last piece? Is that the one you thought was a fossil bone? It's hard to tell the shape without seeing another view. It looks like it could even be a shell from that angle.
