This is a natural yowah opal rough parcel that has been slabed and pre shaped ready for cutting. the precious opal is embedded in the conglomerate? ironstone.. This material may have natural holes in it and
the sandy areas can be hard to polish.You may polish them as natural stones .Or
in asia the cutters rub fine boulder ironstone [you can collect this in the
cutting machine tray by grinding some material away and allow to dry]. They

apply super glue/opticon to it and polish.This gives a good glossy finish.
