I have been reading a lot about opals lately. The LJ recently
had some good material. I have gained an interest in them and
have a couple of questions.
Other than doublets or triplets, are they ever cut in a
calibrated ( like 8 x 6 or 8 x 10 ovals) sizes so as to fit
standard settings? Most I see are odd (freeform) shapes.
I would like to get one, not a collector grade, but just
something that has reasonable fire and would make a decent ring.
I know from previous threads that they are not exceptionably
durable. What price am I likely to encounter and does anyone
know some sources?
