This is a natural piece of boulder matrix from Opalton Queensland Australia..This material has precious opal embedded in the ironstone and usually is easy to get a top polish on.As the opal is through the stone it is easier to polish than boulder opal which may have only a thin colour bar on top.It should be fun to cut this stone.You can cut stones from it make beads or do some interesting specimens or carvings.
We have taken a photo of the stone wet.
As with all rough there is a gamble in cutting-we have cut some stunning stones with this material which are listed in our sites. We also have had some disappointments and sometimes surprise with a rough that looks like it wont cut. Some of this material if near the surface has fine fractures in it and when you cut it it will break apart.Some cutters soak it in resin to stop this. I suggest you look at in when dry before cutting so if you are not pleased you can return it.
As with all our stock if you aren’t pleased you may return it for a refund provided it hasn’t been touched in any way.
