Hi there, Welcome to BlackLightningOpals. On offer today is a slab of rough Queensland boulder opal. It has been slabbed down, and needs to be finished off. The bar can sometimes be thin, undulate or taper. It will possibly require carving with a rotary tool. Its exactly the same material as the cut material we sell (Lot B) its not seconds or rejects. This piece was taken from the bucket of material we have graded out for cutting. We have quite a lot of this rough boulder opal material and can only sell so much cut, so we have chosen to sell rough as well as cut.
Stone: Queensland boulder opal.
Weight: 280.95 carats. Size: Ruler in mm
This material has been photographed wet, outdoors in natural sunlight. When you first get it please wet it and take it outdoors to look at in natural sunlight. You are doing this so your looking at it in the same conditions the image was taken with. If you look at a piece of rough opal dry and under indoors light, it will look nothing like the picture. The pictures were taken wet to show what it should look like once its cut.
