Fun material to work with and really unique stuff. This cabochon was cut from a tube or stalagmite formation. So I was able to produce the eye and a simple balanced round shape. Polished only on one side but will set a nice piece of jewelry with a 3mm girdle.
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.
