Here is a flat cabochon of some nice Utah Dino Bone. Polished on both sides this piece would be great for wire wrapping in my opinion. has a fun claw like shape and though the color is not out of this world. The patterns and texture are classic and very nice in my opinion.
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.
