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
Fossilman: Might hit the beaches today and look for sea glass......

drocknut: Mike, hope you find a lot. I've never looked for sea glass before but I've heard it's hard to find, especially certain colors. Enjoy the hunt and wear sunscreen, don't want the fossilman to get sunburned.
