Limited material like this has come out of Morocco and can be really nice in pattern, contrast, and color. This piece has some vugs and pits. But the material is very color and very nice. Almost plume like and with some iron content in it as well. Polished on both sides and it is a thin flat cab.
Visit my Sold cabochon Gallery to see past opals I have cut. You will find other examples of materials, shapes, sizes, colors, and in general see my work there. Some stones date back over 15 years in there. I don’t show everything I cut, just the ones I really liked over the years. Please let me know if you have any questions about those materials.
Its also important to visit your local rockclub if you have one near by. Its a
great place to start if you are new to gems and minerals. Thank you.
