Here is a nice long and thin example of Picasso Marble from Utah. This piece is a simple shape with simple contrast black on gray color patterns. Classic veining look or streaks of patterns. I have always really enjoyed cutting Picasso marble and will always cut it when I can. Tumble Polished on both sides.
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.
