So in the early days of collecting and cutting fire I learned about the different types like this type. Foil fire. It almost like dicrotic glass in its texture and color layer. It is a very nice cabochon with a simi-flat top and high girdle. Polished really well and very bright piece in sunlight.
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.
