Not really a cabochon but a shaped piece of agate from Brazil. This piece has a double dome and is shaped more like a slightly “S” shape. It is polished on both sides and though may prove a little tricky to set traditionally since the girdle is very thin. It will be a fun project piece for sure.
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.
