WOW !! 5.0 carats Virgin Valley Firey Opal rough from Northern Nevada.
Here is a beautiful piece of Virgin Valley Opal from Northern Nevada.
Beautiful colors and fires in this Opal.
Nice sized stone weighing in at 5.0 carats.
This Opal was filmed wet under halogen lighting with a digital camera.
Virgin Valley Opal needs great care while cutting. It is very brittle and can easily crack. Opal cutting is better left to an expert. While they are brittle, they easily maintain their value. Many such opals are worth Hundred's of dollars.
I try to keep my Opals affordable to everyone because I believe everyone has the right to purchase Opal rough without paying higher costs.

I do accept payment of PayPal and Etsy Payment Plans from all buyers. With PayPal you also have the option of paying with a credit card.

I ship everything by USPS. I ship mostly by First Class mail both in padded envelopes and small boxes. For larger items I ship by Priority Flat Rate boxes and envelopes. I try and keep my postage charges to a minimum, to save my customers on postage charges. I do combine as ofter as I can multiple items in which you have purchased. This will save you money on postage, too.
I do NOT ship out of country. My sales are for USA Buyers, only. This may change down the road, but for now to the United States only.
I also ship everything out with a Tracking Number. I have learned a valuable lesson so I always ship with tracking. Once shipped, I will email you the Tracking Number so you can track it as well.
I try and ship everything out in 2-business days. I do ship on Saturday's as well. Holidays will affect shipping times as the Post Office does close down on Holidays.
Most of everything I ship arrives to you in 3 to 4 business days. The post office must love me as they are very fast. Alaska and Hawaii will take a little longer to receive. I do not ship to any FPO's or APO's or any US occupied countries such as Guam, Okinawa or any war zones.
