Here is a nice little lapis freeform cabochon. It has pretty good color and a real nice cut for a ring stone or accent piece. It has high girdle so the setting will prove nice with the profile of the stone sticking out of the 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.
