You can watch a video of myself, cutting this exact stone below.

The stone was cut from a piece of solid rough opal, from the Lightning Ridge mines in Australia. The rough was about 20 years old, possibly older when I acquired it. I know this as it came from an older estate sale. I cut the stone in early November, 2020. It is very stable material, Not a single crack or fainted bit of crazing
