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 it should be viewed with a bit of a gamble. Some of this material has gem colour in the end of the nodules which can be a pleasant surprise. Some of this material can fall apart when you start to rub it down. This is from tiny fractures that are in some stones.Some cutters use super glue over the stone before cutting or soak in resin but if treated it should be declared as so.
As with all our stock if you arent pleased you may return it for a refund provided it hasnt been touched in any way.
