Holy smokes folks! This is an old cabochon I cut in my early days and now offering it for sale at a steal of a price. It is large, bold, and full of gold. Well, not real gold but golden Rutile. Along with Hematite this cabochon is a clear optical quartz with lots of floating rutile through it and well balanced. A similar size, grade and well cut cabochon like this should be 3 times higher in price.
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.
