Here is a nice piece of Blue Chalcedony from Turkey. It is a flat cabochon where I had a little fun trying to do cross hatching patterns on the top. It makes for a nice contrast in the glowing blue color. Notice the pink color glow as well. Its a very good piece of Chalcedony and now has texture.
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.
