Fun material to work and really easy to work. Nice onyx like patterns but more organic looking. This cabochon is polished on both sides and has a nice 3mm girdle height for easy setting into your jewelry creation. I have only cut a few cabochons of this material and would like to find more.
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.
