Though I have some more of this rough, this is the only cabochon I currently am offering. The grade did not want to polish for me so the piece is a matte finish. A double dome cabochon with more white than blue color. I feel that is part of the reason it wouldn’t polish. But more cutting the rough will prove a learning curve I am sure.
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.
