I recently went back out to the hounding location for White and picked up more and was able to source out the right grade of material. It really is very nice stuff and pretty unique material. This cab shows a couple fractures but is very solid and polished on both sides. 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.
