From the Turkish Cubuk Agate fields that brings us the stick agate that is very popular. This is an end cap cabochon I cut from a test piece for blue color. I cut it to reflect a faceted like 4 sides top with a high point of 9mm. But the girdle for setting is 2mm. Polished on both sides and nice glowing color.
Make sure to click on the “Additional Information” tab to see size and girdle height.
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.
