This piece sure comes close to being Blue Biggs Jasper, but I would call it Blue. It sure is nice in contrast and pattern but the almost white areas were so soft they only undercut and wouldn’t polish. But the piece is really nice anyway. I have a little more of this same cut if you are looking for matching sets, or a different piece.
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.
