Here is another large one for you that like to collect or set large cabochons into your jewelry creation. This piece has a nice open vug of green druzy crystals in it and came from my session cutting at the San Diego Lapidary Society. Nice simple shape and real nice pattern. The slab I cut this from was so thick I actually had to slice this piece down the the 6.5 mm height in order to properly work it for a buyer.
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.
