  • Cabochon
                                                                                        Welcome to Opal Exclusively!

  • this interesting fang-shaped Welo opal is a combination of cabochon and carving.  The long concave arc towards the narrower tip of this stone had to be carved to preserve the natural shape of the stone
  • red, orange, green, & yellow colors with a hint of blue and purple
  • broadflash pattern
  • 3.5/5 brightness
  • slightly milky body color
  • flat back but the stone is undercut along the concave edge approaching the tip, and will require skill to set
  • I cut all my own stones, with each one being a labor of love
  • My stones have a superb polish, with a smooth, continuous finish with no scratches or flat spots (note how smoothly the reflection of the light source moves over the opal's surface in the video)
  • I don't cut for mass production, but rather to bring out the full beauty of each individual piece of rough opal
  • photos and videos are taken under a low-voltage 50W MR-16 halogen light
I want you to be 100% happy with your opal. Opal is a dynamic stone and the magic of its play of color cannot be totally captured in a photograph or video. You truly have to hold it in your own hand to realize its full beauty!! If you find, for whatever reason, that you are not completely satisfied with your opal and would like to return it, you may do so for a full refund. I ask that you simply return the stone, UNALTERED IN ANY WAY, within 10 days of receipt of the stone. You are responsible for shipping and insurance costs. Once received, I will promptly issue you a refund in the same manner used for purchase.
