Rare Material and in a fine example of moss and plume mixture. This is a real nice freeform shape and polished on both sides. The pattern in it are classic Wingate Moss mixture. It is a special piece and priced fairly. I think it will make a very nice setting or wire project on your bench.
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.
