I went collecting more of this material now I know what I am looking for and what makes the best looking cabs. Just like this piece this is as nice as some of the material can get. Excellent shield shape and polished on both sides. 2.5mm girdle and easy bezel for setting into your jewelry creation.
Make sure to click on the “Additional Information” tab to see size and girdle height.
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.
