I like little cabochons and this is a great example of one. It has excellent color and well defined pattern. Though it is rather clear the plume is taking up most of the space. But if you back it when setting with something dark it will make the pattern and color stand out a lot better. Polished on both sides.
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.
