Matrix Opal Gemstones Come in Many Flavors!

Just a review of some of the matrix opal cabochons that I have cut. I evaluate the effectiveness of treatment and other factors.

Very cool, the blue is so unique, it’s hard to believe its not more popular. I never knew till watching your videos there were so many different types of opal. Thanks again for the videos.

These are so beautiful… My dream is to opal mine and learn how to cut them and process them to make them smoothe…I love your videos, thank u for showing us.

That box could probably pay off my student debt.

Brett Nigocs says:

Donald those are beautiful. More intense color than that pendant, my jeweler still has not got done. Thank u for sharing these.

Asya T says:

I was very surprised to hear that blue is considered the least valuable color in opal. I think opals with blue and purple in them are the most beautiful.

Grant Watson says:

I love that blue one

mkpleco says:

Each one is unique with its own character. They are all beautiful.

Stefan Premdas says:

love the large blue with rough edges, would love to have it for an art carving… let me know if its available

Greg Parks says:

Those are beautiful! I’d never heard of treated opal, does that affect the value. Is it worth more typically after treating?

Awesome matrix opal thanks for showing.

Arshia Sultana says:

In any case you can never predict how an opal will turn out to a face value , treatment or just cutting the opal trying to find out something good that is always just a probability.
But this is exactly what makes opal unique,
never know what your getting , But all that time spent in anticipation makes you love no matter what comes out

Craig B says:

Beautiful pieces.

Daniel Kaiser says:

Do you sell pieces to people like me? I have started to make wooden rings that look pretty good with the wood I have.I’d like to try and market some.I go with the “God is in the details” approach.See what happens.
