    Notes:
    This material was bought by me from Murray Willis in South Australia back in 2000. I cut it and saw the little lines or crazing and decided to see if they would grow. I do this with all my opal I cut as i do not want to sell something to someone that will craze in 1 to 3 years time. So this gem has been in the safe for over 15 years and the cracks or crazing have NOT grown at all. I think it is very stable but I do care about what i sell to people. It is priced low for the size and colors; but i will not set it as Rachelle keeps me busy cutting all the time. It has had no treatment in any way and it will make a very unique and lovely pendant.
