Another batch cabochon of Royal Sahara Jasper from Africa. I had the pleasure of meeting the miners years ago when the brought this material to the market. And got to pick rough out along with proven pieces that are just drop dead gorgeous. This cabochon comes from the lighter grade material but has really nice contrast and is a nice little size piece for a gem setting.
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.
