I nice freeform cabochon of Royal Sahara Jasper. This piece has that light tan color with some pretty nice contrast. And a wavy hill pattern going on pretty strong in this piece. A simple natural freeform shape I had to cut this way to remove waste and a fracture from the piece. It reminds of how I used to shape stone.
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.
