Folks here is anotherof our annual Christmas Specials.
A magnificent piece of 8 Mile in the rough that weighs .94 ounces, mined in the 1980s.
The 8 mile field produced some amazing Opal and pieces this size are now very rare.
This piece was mined by the Gentleman in this video and one of his partners, from whom this rough comes from. Fortunately, my friend is not shown in this video, so I can l share it with you. It does contain some colorful language, but it very entertaining.
8 mile shares a similarity with the famous Olympic field in that when the miners were first selling the Opal, they let it go very cheap. They couldnt keep up with demand, then a miner cut a piece properly and couldnt believe his eyes. Both fields, the Opal cuts a lot better than it looks in the rough. It needs to be faced up to reveal the true color.
This piece weighs .94 troy ounces, measures 50 x 32 x 14mm
I think this piece needs to be carved into a V shape for a monster pendant. Doing so will then give you a nice slice for matching ear rings. The potch in the middle is very shallow, this piece has been cleaned up.
Every color in the rainbow in this piece.
