The beginnings of the Opal Bloke eBook download

Peters opal cutting experience was a mixture of ideas found in opal cutting books and in talking to the old guys in the industry who, with quite primitive machinery, were able to produce some amazing gems.

those years with a wife and young family and very little money, Peter had to fabricate machines from very inexpensive components so a lot of his early opal cutting was done very successfully on these machines. Replacing them with more modern diamond impregnated wheels didn’t make much difference to the finish except to make the process quicker.

The results of all this experience has been written in the Opal Bloke eBook download under the title “The ordinary Bloke’s guide to opal” which Peter sold as a CD for many years and is now making it available to all visitors to opalmine.com

Cutting boulder opal is pretty tricky but like everything else, when you get the hang of it, you will be fine. Its good that you are a jewelry creator as well because boulder opal is one of those stones that really inspires you. Maybe you can post some of your work on this forum when its completed. Very best wishes to you in the U.K. I guess its coming on winter over there now. just entering into our muggy summer weather here on the Gold Coast.
