Hello Justin

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for such a pleasant purchasing experience! I am obviously new to Opal and lapidary and was very excited to see you offering training parcels.! I’ve been enjoying Justin’s YouTube videos, and was intrigued to have an opportunity for “private” instruction.. I have already learned so much from the freely available videos and this website, that the additional insight is really appreciated.

I sincerely appreciate all the time and effort everyone puts into you company, and I look forward to conducting more transactions in the future! I’ve been eyeing a couple of pieces, and while I’ll be a bit disappointed if they sell before I am ready, I have no doubt that you will have something equally awesome In their place.

Thanks again!
