rough when there are hundreds of rough rocks. is there a easy way to
pick out the finer pieces or does it take time by looking, like the
more that you see the more you will learn. I found a dozen or so nice
pieces the other night but I’ve never learned how to cut and polish
rock. Three main colors. White, baby blue, and orange. I did find a
fire opal with very nice green and red fire. Would the color fade
after it was cut?
Also, I have two of the cabbing combo machines with 4 or 5 wheels,
and a dual cabbing lathe. Can anyone could suggest a good wheel
combination to help me get from rough to finish. I know that is like
10 or 12 possible wheels. But I mainly use my cab machines to clean
up my castings. This beats a whole day at the bench with a file and a
Please don’t give me any rough opal sources. I’m not looking.
