The easiest way to cut better, more professional looking opals is to use a template to draw your shapes out after your opals have been rubbed but before you put them on the dop sticks. Even after you have been cutting opals for years this one simple step will help significantly speed up you're cutting.
If you have purchased some opals from us we are very happy to to combine shipping on this item and send it in the same pack with your opals.
