Who likes big green and red cabochons? This is a big-un and has a real nice contrasted pattern of black and green with a few floating rubys in the mix. I have only cut a couple pieces of this material ever in my life and though I do like this cabochon. I am not a big fan but the cabochon is more than fair market for the size, cut, and grade of material.
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.
