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
mr.mohs: don't overload that trailer with too much rock weight... rolling into Q ?

drocknut: Well geez Don, you sure make it hard for a girl to pass you up. Can I get a raincheck on the rocks, coffee, dinner, and Jake wash?

drocknut: Ed, not going to Q just yet. Going to my mom's with this trailer. I'll have to be careful about the weight in the trailer for sure.
