Re: Re: Re: Ethiopian Opal (Welo)
Just submitted a photo of a piece I finished. The picture just doesn't do this piece justice. The amount of color play is unbelieveable. It has virtually all the colors. A slight roll in any direction will give the viewer a whole new play. It kind of reminds me of the cd discs with the color play they have. The freeform design was used to salvage ct. weight. My scale is not readilly available so I'm not sure of the weight. This piece would make for a nice pendant, maybe for say my granddaughter. Thinking of making some rounds (4-5mm) for a set of pierced earrings for her as well from the smaller pieces that fractured off. Anyway, happy cutting.
