High end precision custom cut natural Fire Opal from Oregon. An experienced faceter spends a lot of energy and time in producing high precision custom cut gem like this (average 3 -4 hours for every single piece). But the end result is truly worth it! Each unique design such as this piece, was created and hand faceted individually by the well respected master cutter from Germany ~ Uli Zeisberg. This ‘Neo’ design is one of his most difficult creations and he does it only from time to time, so you will not find many of this for sale, not like the mass produced standard cut stones out there. Take note also that master cut stones such as this piece demand higher prices compared to the mass produced standard cut stones i.e. 5x - 20x higher of the normal retail prices.

Weight and size of gemstone/item may vary slightly from piece to piece due to difference in calibration of our weighing and measuring scales compared to those used by buyers.

Colour may also not appear exactly as in real life due to variation in computer monitor resolution and lighting used during photo shooting. Our photos are taken under fluorescent lighting; sometimes Torch Light and Flash Light are also used. We will do our very best to represent the accurate pictures of all our items.
