The first picture shows polished material, the second picture shows raw material the way you will receive it
The picture is an example set of this color of pearl. The set you receive may vary slightly in swirl patterns, but will be the color(s) shown.
Custom orders of color and thickness are welcome and will require the purchase of a full sheet of material. I have 40+ different color options that can be combined in swirl patterns or plain colors. We also sell the colors of pearl scale sets available on my Etsy store in full and half sheets. Full sheets measure 7 3/8" x 10 7/8" x 3/8". Half sheets measure 5 3/8" x 7 3/8" x 3/8".
This material can be worked with any wood working tool and polishes out to a brilliant shine. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about working this material.
