Another cabochon that Ive only ever cut one, and this is the one. I picked up a piece of rough years ago for more than what Im asking for here as the finished piece. And was able to get just this one piece from that rough. That is typical of Fire Obsidian. If you want to get your hands on a piece for your collection this is your chance. Read more about the formation of Fire Obsidian here.
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.
