It is intended as a specimen piece but further polishing could be done if desired as there is still a lot of the piece left rough and natural. If further work and polishing is to be done, it is m. Ore suitable as an ideal carving/dremel piece as the opal is very rough and textured.Great to add to a collection. The first 5 pictures in the gallery is of the stone taken wet and the last 7 pictures are of the stone taken dry. The video also shows the stone dry at the beginning and then it is wet during the video to show the colour not seen when the piece is dry. Please keep in mind that the pictures have been enlarged to show detail, they are not to scale which in result some of the colour and stone appearance can be potentially slightly different on hand.
Please be aware of what you are purchasing, the rough is limited and can only produce what the rough is capable of producing and nothing beyond what is there. This material is often mined forcefully and the rough can be very unpredictable, it is more suited to the experienced cutter if further cutting and polishing is attempted.Please see dimensions below for size. The pictures were taken while the stone was both dry and wet in order to show potential. Pictures were taken under desk lamp light. Please Read "Other Info" Below For More Information. Origin: Opalton Boulder Opal Fields, Queensland.

Any gemstone rough can only produce what the rough allows and not what you think it should cut or produce. The stone can only be cut to what the stone is and if unsure please do not cut and seek advise and only cut when certain and confident but still please be aware of risk in cutting. As all cutters are aware, not all stones will cut and react the way you wish, flexibility and adaptation can sometimes be required when cutting and what you want cannot be forced onto a stone if not possible.
Once a stone is cut it cannot be uncut, neither can colour be put back on when rubbed off or gone. So please be sure when cutting, as the saying goes measure twice cut once. Also if a cutter wishes to explore and rub off colour that is there thinking there is more colour inside of it/underneath the initial face seeking the possibility of better colour and it doesn't work out, we do not take responsibility, it is in the cutters responsibilities and risk taken. The rough can only produce what the rough can produce, nothing more, nothing less.Sometimes you have to cut to how the stone wants to be cut and not what you want if the stone is not capable of it - for example if the rough is best for carving, dremmel cut or specimen, a standard cabochon cannot be achieved to maximise result/best result possible.
