I have a little bucket of this material still and they are fun to cut. This piece has a nice clear agate base with a floating black flower intermixed with some white plumes too. Polished on both sides and is a large cabochon. But it is very thin so the pattern really stands out well.
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.
