There was a time when I predominately cut Mexican Fire Opal. For the past 2 years I have mostly cut Fire Agates. Today I decided that it was time to start cutting more Mexican Opal. The first one off the wheels is this 19 x 12.5, 12.2 carat stone. This stone has a little of the matrix on it.
It is rainy today so was at the mercy of artificial light taking this picture. I do much better with sunlight

dale: Hi I'm new, hope this is the right place to ask a question. I want smooth (no rough or sharp edges) pea gravel about 3/8" max., natural untreated stone, don't care about polish or look, just need the smooth stones. Could I buy stones or tumble them?
