MASTERCUT WELLO CRYSTAL GEM OPAL

MUCH MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THE PHOTOS REVEAL

WILL CREATE AN IMPRESSIVE PIECE OF JEWELLERY

ALL SURFACES ARE HIGHLY POLISHED TO AN EXACTING, UNCOMPROMISING DEGREE

Ready for a bit of Welo whimsy?  I was when I cut this interesting stone.  It has nine individual planes or surfaces. Each displays the intricate honeycomb/snakeskin pattern. And each cell in each of the nine surfaces becomes a playground for the light as this unique gem is moved about in the light.  You’ll see sheets of multicolored fire - crimson, green, blue, golden yellow and others - on each surface. The photos give you an idea of the shape and features of this quite different stone but you really need to see it in person to get the full effect. Not being an artisan I can’t begin to suggest how this unusual Welo gem could best be put to lovely use. If you are a collector I don’t think you’ll have anything quite like this special stone.  Cutting rough containing the honeycomb/snakeskin pattern is exceedingly difficult to find. If you are a lover of Welo crystal opal you probably already know the difficulty of obtaining this material.  I had even considered re-working and slicing this gem into several smaller pieces but good sense finally prevailed. Such a different Welo crystal opal certainly is food for thought and may give you something to consider.  Best wishes as you ponder this crystal opal.
